Teenagers, drinking & driving

Nearly all high school juniors and seniors believe their peers are more likely to drink and drive on prom and graduation nights according to the Center for Substance Abuse Research. Despite this perception, students do not think driving on these nights is dangerous.

In northeast Seattle, 23% of high school juniors and 33% of high school seniors report riding with someone who has been drinking.
