Partnering with Bang Towing, Gershow Recycling and Suffolk County legislators Tom Cilmi and Steven J. Flotteron, the high school’s Students Against Destructive Decisions club held a press conference about the “100 Deadliest Days” on June 12, with a massive display of smashed cars set up by Bang Towing in front of the school as the backdrop.

Teen auto crash rates rise dramatically during the 100 Deadliest Days, which last from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Led by SADD adviser Bridget Lopiccolo, the event brought awareness to the dangers of drinking/texting and driving, driving while impaired and distracted driving.

“The SADD Club is committed to educating students, staff and community that acts such as drinking and driving or texting and driving can not only affect your life but the lives of others,” said Lopiccolo. “We do not want to lose another student or community member to these preventable decisions.”
