Collins High School hosted two alcohol prevention programs sponsored by the Kentucky Crime Prevention Coalition and SCPS Student Assistance Program. All eighth-graders had an opportunity to participate in hands on student simulation, which uses altered-vision goggles to help students understand the dangers of riding with someone who is under the influence of alcohol. All seniors had a chance to participate in a fatal experience driving simulation), which also uses altered-vision goggles. These students also received a short class on alcohol, seat belt and cell phone laws and participated in a sobriety check. Students then either drove or were passengers in a four-person electric car driven on an outdoor course accompanied by an instructor.
