A group of people in Meridian is trying to tackle the problem of underage drinking.
It's apparently a major issue in Lauderdale County, which has the third highest rate of underage DUIs in Mississippi.
The Smarter Choices Community Coalition is kicking off a campaign to try to lower those numbers.
Judge Vel Young, who heads the Lauderdale County alcohol and drug court, spoke at the event, saying it's not enough to simply take the keys away from an underage driver who has been drinking. She says supplying them with alcohol must also stop.
