Teens get a close up look at dangers of unsafe driving

On May 15, the Asheville Fire and Police Departments, in partnership with Buncombe County EMS, the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Department and the North Carolina Highway Patrol staged a mock motor vehicle fatality on the campus of Asheville High School to encourage teens to drive safely.

“Motor vehicle accidents are now the number one killer of teens,” says AFD spokesperson Kelley Klope. “We sincerely believe that through this on-going teenage driver safety program and with strong parental support, teenage traffic fatalities can be eliminated in our community.”
