MISSION — The Mission Police Department hosted a “Choose Your Ride” presentation for local high school students last week to show the repercussions of making the wrong decisions during Spring Break activities.
About 65 students from Mission High School and Veterans Memorial High School from an AP history class and a law enforcement class were in attendance. Craig Verley, a spokesman for the Mission Consolidated Independent School District, said the students are meant to be ambassadors and share the message with friends and other students.
Interim Police Chief Martin Garza introduced a video that showed pictures of car accidents that were the result of teenaged drivers taking the wheel after a Spring Break party. The message was simple – driving while intoxicated kills.
