“It’s important for me to be here because I know drunk driving is a prevalent problem during new year’s,” explained freshman Ani Zakarian.

From an adult standpoint, when you are speaking out against something, it’s very powerful.

Police will set up DUI checkpoints starting Friday through New Year’s Day.
