This was the first time for the event "Drive By the Rules. Keep the Privilege" sponsored by Arkansas Children's Hospital with help from Pulaski County Sheriff's Department, North Little Rock Police and Little Rock Police.  

Holly Choate with Injury Prevention at Arkansas Children's Hospital reminds parents to keep alcohol away from teens. It may seem obvious but the number one source for minors to get alcohol is in their own homes--in parents' fridge or cabinet.
