Assemb. Fred W. Thiele Jr. (I-Sag Harbor) will be at East Hampton High School Friday to introduce a Suffolk County program aimed at stopping drunken driving.

The program will teach students the perils of drinking and driving and give tips about  avoiding riding in a car with a drunken driver.

East Hampton police and representatives from the county’s STOP-DWI program also will be part of the program.

“The more exposure, the better,” Thiele said.

STOP-DWI travels across Suffolk County to different high schools to raise awareness of the problems of drinking and driving.
