Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
Every teen needs to be reminded of how to be responsible for their own safety and the outcomes of intentional acts of irresponsible behavior. This video conference brought to students by Dori Saves Lives, Broward County Public Schools and the GEICO Foundation will remind the students to not engage in anything questionable while riding a motorcycle, bicycle or in a vehicle. This will be accomplished through the heartbreaking, real life consequences shared by our speakers. It will educate teens on different legal and medical issues involved with dangerous actions, how to avoid peer pressure and the difficult decisions that they face on the road.
