Warning about 'X-rated' high school scavenger hunt

- A senior tradition known as Road Rally at several high schools across Long Island has been dubbed a rite of passage for some but downright dangerous for others.

Sources said you pay to play. It's similar to a scavenger hunt but it's X-rated. Each task is photographed as proof for points. The winning team gets the money.

Fox 5 tried to speak to students but no one would go on camera. 

"The things that are on the list are inappropriate," said one parent who didn't want to be identified. 

Administrators at Jericho High School warned parents Road Rally is planned for Saturday night. In an email, administrators asked for help in ending what they call an "unhealthy activity."

"Taking pictures of a speedometer at excessive speeds, kids involved in underage alcohol consumption, kids involved in use of drugs as well, kids involved in inappropriate sexual activity," Superintendent Hank Grishman said in a phone interview. He has seen the list in past years. He isn't aware of any major injuries but at this point, he said it is a safety concern. 

"There are many things that can be considered a rite of passage," Grishman said. "From my perspective as a parent as well, it's not one of the rites of passage that I would support."

Nassau County Police is aware of the event and plans to intensify patrols in the area.
