CHICO, Calif. – Every 15 Minutes happened Thursday for three high schools in Chico.
Put on by California Highway Patrol, the safety campaign is with students and staff who act in the dramatic story showing what can happen when people drink and drive.
"I think they're getting it," said Laura Dietle, a Pleasant Valley High School teacher. "I think when the heartbeat goes off, they see the student graveyard, they see the living dead students in the crash scene and all the components, they hear the guest speakers, it really hits home with students that this is very serious and very dangerous."
On Friday, the second of the two-day campaign, Sandra Chesterman will be speaking with students during an assembly about her daughter, Kristina Chesterman.
Chesterman, a Chico State nursing student, was hit and killed by an impaired driver as she rode her bicycle home from campus.
