School’s in session: Don’t learn this lesson the hard way

The Summer break for students has come and gone, which can only mean one thing.

That’s right, school is back in session.

It is an exciting time as students set up their dorms, meet their teachers and make new friends.

But there is one lesson Tangi Carter doesn’t want students to learn the hard way.

Don’t drink and drive. Be sure to always call a cab, call Uber, or use a SOBER designated driver. Don’t let one mistake ruin your life!

Most high schools start back the second week and August. Colleges like Southern Miss and William Carey start back the last week of the month.

That doesn’t mean parties and late-night hangouts will wait until the bell rings.

In fact, we are still in the deadliest 100 days for teen drivers.

Students, take notes, because these are some scary facts about drinking and driving:

  • 1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor vehicle crashes every year.

  • 599,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are unintentionally injured under the influence of alcohol

  • 3,360,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 drive under the influence of alcohol
