ROCHESTER, Minn.- It's homecoming week for some students in Rochester and school officials are urging teens to make wise decisions.
That's why Century High School hosted a drunk and distracted driving simulation during lunch period.
Police officers were there to share the serious impacts of distracted driving.

The school had activities that showed the dangers of drunk/distracted driving by wearing impaired vision goggles and a monitor to simulate the dangers of texting while driving.
For students like Kyle Philpott, it's an effective way to teach a sobering lesson.

“Having refreshments like this is really effective because you can see real life events and hear real life stories like how this happened and how this is a real world problem,” said Philpott.
