5 powerful SLAM photos that will encourage you to drive safely

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The last two days have been emotional ones for local high school students and emergency responders. This is because of the S.L.A.M. (Simulated Live Action Melodrama) "Every Fifteen Minutes" program, described as "emotionally charged program that has the goal of creating lasting impacts upon teenagers who are making life choices regarding not only their safety, but also the safety of others." 11 local agencies and more than 60 volunteers helped make this two-day event happen. "I have been involved in every year of it and I believe that this was the best one yet," said Lieutenant Slade Ross with the Teton County Sheriff's Office. "I think the presentation has gotten more polished every time but I think the second day went way above with the addition of the judge doing the sentencing and the video which was done by one of the students, Justin Means. Mr. Means did the video on his own time, over the evening and without being asked to. We did not think we would have a video until he showed up with it and what a great surprise." Here are 5 photos that will encourage you to remember to drive safe. Remember, these were all taken during a simulation conducted on Wednesday and Thursday at Jackson Hole High School. *1.
