Poll Results: Mock Car Crashes Are Ineffective in Drunk Driving Prevention

That's what the majority of people who voted in last week's poll said.

Last Wednesday, Melrose Patch asked you

Between then and Tuesday morning, 34 people voted in the poll. 

The results? 

  • 22 (64 percent) said, "No; it's a waste of public resources to stage a mock car crash." 
  • 12 (35 percent) said, "Yes; teens need to see the worst possible outcome of drinking and driving." 

 said in the comments section that a mock car crash that she witnessed as a teen had a great influence on her. "If a mock car crash makes just one person stop and rethink their choice to get behind the wheel after a drink or a hit, or to pick up their phone while driving to check a text, then I'd say they are effective," she wrote.
