Don't want to be overly cynical, but if you really want to show them the danger and the results, take them to the morgue.

I think that this "Time2Drive" event is a great starting point for kids to attend (especially, before they start driving).
It would be great for kids to hear from other kids (speakers at event?) who have been impacted by drivers who drank and drove, as studies show that teenagers are influenced more by peers their peers than their parents at this point in their lives...
In any event, my family will attend this event. Thank you Steven Hom for producing this for the community!

A very worthwhile and important effort, now let's focus increasing enforcement on ADULTS talking on their cellphones while buzzing through downtown. A policeman could station themselves along Railroad Avenue, or El Cerro, or Diablo Road, or Green Valley Road and see many Moms in SUVs talking away distractedly while driving. Parents need to set a good example for their children in this important safety issue.
