HILLVIEW -- Many years ago, there was a program in Jefferson County schools called Scared Straight.

Students would listen to people who were responsible for bad things -- most times fatal traffic accidents -- because they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The goal of any program is to bring a little reality to a possible situation if they make bad choices.

Through the years, individuals have come to schools across the country to give similar testimony on why drinking and driving do not mix.
