The rally focused on the four highest risk driving behaviors that affect teenage drivers today such as seat belt use, speeding, drinking and driving, and talking and texting while driving. The event featured several speakers whose lives have been affected by motor vehicle crashes along with the rollover simulator, safety information from several agencies and a mock fatal crash scene. Over 400 students from 20 high schools participated in the rally. After the rally, students that participated will make a classroom presentation about safe driving at their home school to spread the word about safe driving.
