Mock DUI crashes staged at high schools are their own rite of passage these days, with police and fire officials hoping they get an important message to sink in.

Students at San Juan Hills experienced the demonstration April 28. But then they went the extra mile and made the above video.

"We are doing a Mock DUI Crash to get the students thinking before prom and the summer months," said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi before the event. "We will not only discuss teen DUI, but the dangers of texting, street racing, being distracted and not wearing seat belts."

They really did go above and beyond and I love that they had so much community support and involvement.

I wish every teenager could see this & understand it could happen to them. It's very emotional to see these done at the hospital, as Mission does with the teens every year.

That was very well done. Ought to be mandatory viewing for every high school kid.
