Towson, MD (April 19, 2012) --- The Maryland Community Crime Prevention Institute (MCCPI) will hold a drunken driving awareness day for 30 Liberty High School students on Monday, April 23 beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the state’s law enforcement Driver Training Facility at 7310 Slacks Road in Sykesville.

The dramatic session will include students taking field sobriety tests; attempting to drive while “under the influence” of special goggles that simulate the effects of inebriation; and hearing the heartbreaking story of parents who lost their child to a drunken driver.

MCCPI’s Bruce Lohr, a retired Howard County police officer who teaches throughout the state all year, will lead the day’s events, which include a classroom session introducing the students to the dangers of getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol.

Members of the media are encouraged to visit this important event. Please contact Mark Vernarelli at 410 339 5065.
