"Wasted" documents the horrific chain of events that occurred after this Oregon teen chose to ride in a vehicle with a drunk driver.
“What makes this video stand out is that it presents actual testimonials. It isn’t a “what if?’ scenario, it is real life. These are teens whose lives are forever changed,” said Rudy Williams, OLCC Deputy Director, Public Safety Services. “We believe the DVD is important because at the heart of everything we do, keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors matters.”
Produced by the OLCC in cooperation with the Oregon Dept. of Transportation, "Wasted" will be shared with schools, PTA's, youth organizations, prevention groups, law enforcement, state legislators, and the liquor administrations in all 50 states for use in educational programs nationwide.
“We succeed in saving a life if just one teen refuses to get in a car with a drunk driver or chooses not to drink and drive because of this video,” says Williams.
