Students Experience Distracted Driving Simulator

In early October, the Kiefer Foundation made a visit to Centreville with a mission to help end distracted driving. The Kiefer foundation has partnered with the PEERS Foundation and Centreville juniors and seniors were able to take part in an augmented reality driving simulator.  While one student sat in the driver's seat and put on the simulator, other students were able to watch what it was like on a monitor as that driver participated in many of the common distractions that take away a driver's attention.

"On September 19, 2016, Mitchel Kiefer was tragically killed in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver.  Founded to honor Mitchel's legacy, the mission of the Kiefer Foundation is to end distracted driving and all associated traffic deaths and injuries.  Efforts from our three pillars will support our mission: awareness, policy, technology."
