The distracted driving programs at the Arrive Alive Tour are in full swing. The fall semester is a busy time, as they are making their way around the nation touring high schools, college and corporations. Learning the dangers of texting while driving, drinking and driving and drugged driving has no age limit. That is why these distracted driving programs are so successful!
Distracted Driving Programs
One of the recent stops for the Arrive Alive Tour was at Peoria High School in Illinois. The students were able to experience the distracted driving programs and the Journal Star was able to capture it in photos! Here is their take on things from their visit:
“Peoria High School freshman Dashawn Wells, center, laughs Tuesday with Deatric Pollard as their friend, Aquantis Ward, drives a vehicle simulator into an accident during an Arrive Alive virtual reality impaired driving and texting simulation at the school. The exercise is intended to offer teenagers a first-hand safe experience of the consequences of driving impaired by alcohol or drugs and the loss of attention in the use of a cell phone while driving.”
“Peoria High School sophomore Alejandro Arrequin, reflected on video screen, watches as classmate Anthony Blackard speeds down the highway in his turn behind the wheel Tuesday of a virtual reality impaired driving and texting simulator at the school. Standing outside the simulator vehicle are Arrive Alive representatives Tori Grodi, left, and her husband, Mike, who encourages the drivers to make mistakes during the simulation.”
“Peoria High School sophomore Anthony Blackard pleads his case with Arrive Alive representative Tori Grodi after Blackard crashed in his turn behind the wheel Tuesday of a virtual reality impaired driving and texting simulator at the school.”
“Peoria High School sophomore Alejandro Arrequin concentrates on his driving as Arrive Alive representative Mike Grodi encourages him to pick up and use his cell phone in his turn behind the wheel Tuesday of a virtual reality impaired driving and texting simulator at the school.”
