Loudoun County, VA – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and Loudoun County Public Schools have joined together to bring the ABC7/WJLA-TV “Drive to Stay Alive” program to Park View High School to talk to teens about making smart choices behind the wheel.

WJLA anchor Leon Harris will be joined by Sgt. Kevin Robinette of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit to discuss the dangers of speeding, texting, and drinking and driving.

“Auto accidents are the leading cause of death among teens. This program enables parents an understanding on how to best talk to their children about the dangers and consequences of driving while distracted or under the influence of drugs or alcohol,” said Loudoun County Public Schools Public Information Officer Wayde Byard.

“Our crash investigators have seen first-hand that inexperience and distractions inside the vehicle are particularly dangerous for teen drivers,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman. “We want to emphasize to all teen drivers in Loudoun County to buckle up, stay aware, and never drink and drive,” Sheriff Chapman added.

The program will be held at noon tomorrow for the students at Park View High School.
