‘Wreckage’ reminds La Jolla High students of drunk driving danger

To cooincide with prom and graduation time, students at La Jolla High School got a very real reminder of the dangers of drinking and driving last week.

This car was on the La Jolla High School campus for about a week to remind students about the dangers of drunk driving. Ashley Mackin


In partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the school brought a wrecked car to the quad, which it has done every year for at least 10 years. Student government advisor Joe Cavaiola said the installation is part of a school-wide effort to make students aware of the risks involved with driving drunk. The damage to the car suggests a fatality was involved, he said, “to educate students and make sure they get to see life past prom, past the summer and past graduation.”
