Why Support Sober Grad Night?

Sober Grad Night events are held for thousands of graduating seniors each year. They offer students a safe, sober, supervised, and fun place to celebrate their high school graduation with their friends.
We would like to share some statistics with you, obtained from the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) website and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data.
In California in 2010, there were 2,715 traffic-related fatalities; 34% were alcohol-related. 1
As of 2009, traffic crashes were the number one killer of teens (15-20 year old) and 33% of teen traffic deaths were alcohol-related. 2
With annual events like proms and graduation parties, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day has been labeled “The 100 Deadliest Days” for teen drivers. 3
Mile for mile, teenagers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers. 4

Statistics have shown that students celebrating on the evening of graduation can experience one of the most dangerous nights of their young lives. Our goal is to save lives by providing a safe and sober graduation night celebration.
