State Farm sponsors driving simulation

Oct 11, 2017



Texting and Driving

Tim Burnette with State Farm insurance and Kristin Pettway with Drive Smart Va came to JSB to allow students to see the risks of drinking and driving as well as texting and driving. Through a driving simulator the students were asked to text someone a simple message like I'm running late while navigating through red lights, stop signs, and pedestrians. At the end they are told how many dangerous mistakes they made.  Several students either hit a car or a pedestrian while in the simulator. The other activity was to use impaired goggles that simulate a high BAC level while the students were asked to drive a tricycle through cones showing the risk of drunk driving.   #drivesafe #eyesontheroad #itcanwait #donttextanddrive #statefarm #drivesmartva #jsb
