Come experience texting and driving at Arrive Alive on Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 9:00am to 3:00pm at AA1 Auto Bay.

One of the most commonly recognized driving distractions is cell phone use. About 89 percent of all Americans have a cell phone. Drivers under 20 years old have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes. Their lack of driving experience can contribute to critical misjudgments if they become distracted. Not surprisingly, they text more than any other age group and the numbers of young drivers who text is only increasing.

UNITE‘s Arrive Alive program uses a high-tech simulator, impact video, and a number of other resources to educate students about the dangers of texting while driving. The simulator allows students to experience, in a controlled environment, the potential consequences of drunk and distracted driving.

This event is sponsored by your Activities Programming Board (APB).
