Lexington, NC -- Imagine losing your entire family, in one day.
It's a sad and heartbreaking thought.
Something Davana Moore doesn't have to imagine -- she's living it.
Moore lost four family members to a drunk driver in July 2003.
"The [drunk driver] got on the interstate going the wrong way and hit and killed my family head on," she recalled.
The driver also died in the crash. Two of the victims were David and Desiree, Davana's two children.
"I want to be their voice. I want to be the voice for them. They were teenagers and I want to be their voice to tell people don't do it," she said.
And since the tragic accident, the grieving mother has made it her cause to curb teen drunk driving.
Saturday, she and state troopers along with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) drove that message home.
"Is it really worth, maybe, taking the life of someone else or taking your own life and causing your family grief? It's a simple decision: pass the keys," Davana said.
The event allowed passersby to wear "drunken goggles" - which simulated being drunk with increasing BAC.
"It looked very scary," said Chris Vestal, a 15-year-old who tried the exercise.
"Don't drink and drive," said Dillon Socha, another teen who participated.
State Trooper Sergeant Kim Brown explained it was important for her department to join the cause.
She says drunk driving deaths among young people are still high compared to the general population.
"That could be our family, our spouse that's in that car that's driving on these roads. It hits home that's why we take such interest in getting in the community and getting the word out," she added.
The Center for Disease Control says teen drunk driving, nationwide, is down by 54 percent - over a 20 year period starting in 1991
But victims advocates like MADD say, it takes only one drunk driver to end a life and that's one too many.
"If I save one life, if I impact one child, or one adult, from not getting behind that wheel, or not getting in the car with someone who has been drinking, then it's worth it," said Davana.
