Park City High School displays dangers of drunk driving ahead of graduation

Park City High School's 2023 drunk driving dramatization.

Lights, sirens and a helicopter will descend on Park City High School Friday in a reenactment to show students the real-life dangers of driving under the influence.

Park City High School will lay the scene for a dramatization showing the realities of a fatal accident when a student drives drunk after a party.

Principal Roger Arbabi said the portrayal is meant to “convey the harsh realities and devastating consequences that can result from irresponsible decisions.”

After the accident simulation at 9 a.m., first responders and police officers will share their first-hand accounts of similar accidents to emphasize the impacts of drunk driving. Arbabi said it’s the community’s responsibility to ensure “students understand the gravity of their actions and make informed decisions, especially as they prepare to embark on new chapters in their lives.”

Arbabi urges all seniors to attend the event and encourages an open dialogue between parents and children so they know the risks associated with alcohol and drunk driving.

Park City High School graduation is Friday, June 7.
