LEE CO., Ga. (WALB) - The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) is set to present the Dangers of Driving Symposium at Lee County High School on Monday, March 9 from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m.

The Dangers of Driving Challenge has been designed to allow students to have hands-on experience with the challenges of driving.

The symposium will include a rollover simulator, seat belt convincer, impaired driving challenge, quick click seat belt challenge in addition to the seven crosses of Lee County.

The seven crosses of Lee County is a visual reminder, using storyboards of the seven Lee County High students who lost their lives to car-related fatalities since 1990.
