Street Smarts

Those same streets kill one person every 12 minutes in motor vehicle accidents across the country. That's why paramedics are putting on the "Street Smarts" program at Leon County high schools this week.

It's where paramedics show students what they see firsthand on the scene of bad and fatal accidents.

With Leon County students going on spring break next week, teachers want to reaffirm the dangers of drunk driving and not wearing a seat belt.

"We know that these people are all making a lot of the decisions, and what we're trying to do is give them info to make good decisions here,” says Street Smarts paramedic Greg McCarty.

Street Smarts, which is known for its graphic content, is the result of a partnership between the Leon County Sheriff's Office and Anheuser-Busch.
