Students at Lithia Springs High School teamed with several local agencies to produce a public-service video showing the dangers of teenage drinking and driving.

The video, entitled "Every 15 Minutes," tells the fictitious story of a teenage party ending with a fatal car accident. "Every 15 Minutes" refers to the statistic that someone is killed by an alcohol-related traffic accident every 15 minutes.

The cast is made up mostly of Lithia Springs students, with the help of personnel of the county Sheriff's Office and Fire Department, and Judge Susan Camp.

Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller posted the video on the department's Facebook page with the following message:

"Every 15 minutes, someone in the US is killed in an alcohol-related traffic collision. My thanks to everyone who participated in the making of this awesome public service announcement. I pray that our children will take heart and not drink and drive."
