While state legislators in Madison debate how to pay for increased penalties for drunk drivers, students at one Wisconsin high school are featured in a new film, which highlights the dangers of drunk driving. A party gone wrong is played out by McFarland High School students for their peers. The film is called ‘Shattered‘ and has a showing in McFarland for the public tonight. Senior Kyle Kubecheck plays a non-drinking student who goes to a party where alcohol is served – but who does nothing to stop it or prevent others from getting behind the wheel
Kubecheck and other McFarland students wanted to get the message across to prevent a drunk driving tragedy from happening to their community. Kubecheck says peer pressure in high school is a major factor in decisions about drinking
The student body has been shown the movie this month, and it’s also being shown to the general public. There’s another showing at the high school tonight.
