The Pleasanton Police Department staged a simulated fatal traffic accident March 24, in the parking lot at Amador Valley High School. Because of Covid-19 health guidelines, this the first time the Pleasanton Unified School District’s annual “Every 15 Minutes” program, designed to teach teens about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, was not conducted in front of a live audience. Instead, the “accident” and emergency response were videotaped and will be shown to juniors and seniors during class. The name of the program is derived from the frequency at which someone is killed in an alcohol- or drug-related traffic accident in the U.S. In addition to the Pleasanton police, the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department, FALCK Ambulance Services, Graham-Hitch Mortuary, First St. Towing, and the California Highway Patrol participated in the simulation. Funding for the program came from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. (Photos - Doug Jorgensen)
