Every 15 Minutes dropped by Lodi High School last week in a bid to educate teenagers about the real world ramifications of texting and driving and drunk driving. Throughout the day, a designated Grim Reaper wandered through the halls to pull a student out of their classroom at 15 minute intervals. That teen would then be considered dead in order to emphasize that a teen loses their life to things like texting or intoxicated driving every quarter hour. At the close of the day, the remainder of the students were assembled to watch emergency officials respond to a mock car accident that sought to further drive home just what toll texting or intoxication can have on human life.
