Megyn Forest from Borgess Trauma Services visited December 12th to meet with a group of sophomores to talk about distracted driving. Students viewed a powerpoint presentation showing the different distractions that drivers can face and how to best eliminate them. This included speaking up if they were a passenger in a car and the driver was driving distracted.
Additionally, the students were able to use a driving simulator that mimics the effects of being distracted by passengers, dialing a cell phone or texting. Students were able to see driving infractions pop up on the screen as their distracted driving resulted in crossing the center line, swerving, or hitting pedestrians, animals or other vehicles.
Megyn will be back later to meet with the other sophomores.
