Distracted Driving Programs
Due to COVID-19 distance-learning and stay-at-home recommendations across the nation, all 2020 spring and summer Augmented Reality Distracted Driving Education Simulator (ARDDES) and Reality Check Vaping Awareness & Nicotine Prevention Program events have been postponed. Thanks to the generous support of our corporate partners, PEERS Foundation school programs and community events will resume once current emergency orders have been lifted.
Staying at the forefront of interactive education and innovative technology
At the PEERS Foundation, we inspire young people to lead healthy and successful lives through our innovative and interactive learning programs. Our award-winning programs cover a multitude of areas including driving safety, health and wellness education, and career development.
Losing someone to distracted driving is near and dear to our hearts. We want to help create a shift in the attitudes of young drivers and inspire them to make the right choices.
Distracted driving is the number one cause of fatalities in ages 16 to 29.
The National Safety Council has reported that cell phone use while driving leads to a staggering 1.6 million vehicle crashes each year.
Numbers like these are exactly why the PEERS Foundation has set out to teach young people about the dangers of distracted driving.
Using the country’s first and only augmented reality distracted driving education simulator (ARDDES), we’ve been able to provide young people with a hands-on, realistic experience of distracted driving.
Distracted driving is the number one cause of fatalities in ages 16 to 29. Smart devices and activities like texting while driving have caused driver fatalities to rise at unprecedented levels.
The PEERS Foundation’s “Reality Check” Vaping Prevention Game Show brings an exciting yet informative, hands-on event in a game show format to your school.
Michael and Scott Seymore formed the PEERS Foundation to help bring educational programs to young people throughout the United States. With years of experience in event design and construction, booking, management and execution, he has spearheaded the success of the PEERS Foundation.
We give students the tools needed to make the right decisions when it comes to critical impasses, such as drug and alcohol use, tobacco education and prevention, and cyberbullying. Through our interactive programs, we see young people develop a sense of camaraderie as they are inspired to build healthy and successful lives.
When you partner with the PEERS Foundation, we’ll be able to bring our programs to schools across the nation to raise awareness and inspire change.

The activity was certainly an eye opener for our students. While there is no substitute for actual experience and learning, the augmented reality program takes things to a whole new level. Our students came out buzzing.

Thank you for the wonderful job Mike and his team did. The students really enjoyed the presentation. I heard many positive comments and they seemed very engaged. I also appreciate the fact that your team did a great job being on time and setting up.
Thank you for visiting our school and helping to educate our students about distracted driving.
Thank you for graciously providing our students with a driving simulation they will never forget. I’d especially like to commend your staff members, Cindy and Mike for demonstrating professionalism, friendliness and patience. Your generous offering of time, equipment and personnel will certainly assist our students int their lives out of school.
The children we really engaged and enjoyed all of the reactions they experienced while driving the vehicle. The students were able to learn it wasn’t as easy to text and drive as they thought, along with the dangers and consequences texting causes.
That crew that came in was professional and efficient. They did a great job with a serious topic while at the same time providing a unique activity that engaged the students.
I had a very very pleasant experience with the staff from Peers. The augmented reality really gave our students a great experience to be behind the wheel and see the effects of driving while distracted, whether it was a phone or others talking and commenting. I definitely enjoyed the experience and I know the students did as well.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
The students took the experience seriously. While in the simulator, they tried their hardest to avoid obstacles and saw firsthand the effects of distractions. They also enjoyed watching their fellow students spectacularly mess up.
