Retired NBA player Shaquille O'Neal recently talked with teenagers at Arabia Mountain High School about two very dangerous problems teens today face: drunk driving and distracted driving.
Shaq assisted representatives from the DeKalb District Attorney's office along with DeKalb County Fire and Rescue Department, and the Georgia Department of Highway Safety to talk to teens about highway safety and vehicular homicide. A victim of a DUI accident also talked about their experience and how that crash almost took his life.
Teens and their parents need to remember that at age 17, teens are charged as adults and their case for DUI, etc. will not be heard in juvenile court, but in a municipal, state, or superior court.
