Arrive Alive™ Texting While Driving / Distracted Driving Simulator
Through our Texting While Driving and Distracted Driving Prevention Program, we will allow your entire community to become aware of the dangers of texting and driving and drunk driving. We will start by sending press releases to all the media in your area. This raises awareness to your community about two things. One, your campus’ fight against distracted and texting and driving. Secondly, that drinking while driving and texting while driving is dangerous – and in most states against the law!!
Next, the Arrive Alive Tour will start the visual message on campus. Posters will be made available for you to put on campus to help further educate your students about the dangers of distracted driving. Pre- and post-event surveys will be customized for your school’s student body. The pre-event survey will allow you to find out before we get to your campus where your students are in relation to texting while driving and distracted driving knowledge. The post-event survey will allow you to find out just how educational our texting and driving program was while on your campus.
The Arrive Alive Tour will run on your campus from your first bell until your last bell. This will not include setup time. Our technicians will be on site about 1 and 1/2 hours prior to your event. This is to make sure that everything is set up and ready to go.
With the Arrive Alive Tour, your students will be allowed to experience texting while driving and impaired driving first hand without actually being in a dangerous situation.
We will have a passenger eye view set up so that those students standing around the texting and driving simulator will be able to experience what the driver experiences from the passenger’s point of view. We will give your students a mock ticket after their simulation. This allows them to see the physical and legal dangers of texting while driving and distracted driving.
Our professional facilitator will be asking your students questions and giving statistics about texting while driving and it’s dangers for the duration of our program. Our high-impact video presentation will play all day long during the Arrive Alive Tour. This will allow your students to see all of the dangers of texting and driving.
Our FIGHT FOR LIFE station will be available for your students. This allows your student to dedicate their lives to never drive while texting or distracted. This will also allow your students to sign up for our online continuation program.
This allows UNITE to periodically send your students more information about texting while driving and distracted driving, as well as occasionally send a survey to find out where they are in their personal lives regarding texting and distracted driving.
You and your school will receive statistical analysis of these surveys periodically, as we receive the surveys. This will allow you to see the continual impact of the Arrive Alive Tour for a long time to come.
