THE BRONX - A new survey shows that most high school students aren't drinking alcohol.

The report from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), which was released to coincide with Red Ribbon Week, found that 77 percent of teens surveyed, or three out of every four, don't drink.

The research shows 4,700 people die each year as a result of underage drinking, which is more than all other drugs combined.

Red Ribbon Week is a nationally observed week in which schools help raise awareness about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
