Distracted Driving Details
While most of us consider distracted driving to be texting while driving, that is not always the case. The NHTSA states that distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving. Examples of this can include texting and driving, eating while driving or even applying your makeup while driving to work. Texting and driving has become the most prevalent distraction, as it is claiming more and more lives every year. The dangers of distracted driving can be experienced with our texting and driving simulator allows participants to experience the dangers of distracted driving without being put in a dangerous situation.
Talking On Cell Phone Is Bad Too
A lot of newer vehicles are coming with better technology, which includes hands-free devices that allow drivers to talk on their phones without having to actually pick up their phone. While it may seem that being hands-free is a better option, talking on your cell phone while driving is still bad. A new study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that drivers talking on a cell phone while behind the wheel, regardless if they are using the actual phone or a hands-free device, are four times more likely to be involved in a crash.
Texting and Driving Simulator
With all the dangers and warnings to not text and drive, people still do it. That is why truly experiencing the dangers of texting while driving is key. The texting and driving simulator tours the country for all communities to enjoy the benefits. Participants sit in an actual Jeep and text while “driving.” This is a hands-on experience you can’t get anywhere else. There is no true danger during the simulation. The participants get to see how looking down at one text message can cause a crash!
