‘It would prevent a lot of accidents’: proposed bill to ban use of phone with hands while driving advances
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – A proposed bill to ban the use of phones with hands while driving advanced on Tuesday. People from
MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – “Have you ever texted and driven?” asked the instructor. “We’re all guilty of it – which by the way, you just
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.
I honestly didn’t know how our students would respond to this opportunity. This major issue is too important, and the offer was too good, to turn down. I actually teach a Bible class later in the school day, so I asked for feedback from students who had experienced the simulation, and I received enthusiastically positive responses. One unanticipated outcome — the 10% discount on insurance when a student participates — only sweetened the feedback. Please keep up your great work with an issue
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.
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our students and teachers about both the presentation and the experience with your team. Our kid shad a great time, all while being educated.
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
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.
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.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
Thank you so much for coming to our school. This distracted driving program was a big hit and we heard the students talking about it long into the week. Thank you!
Thank you so much for having PEERS Foundation come work with our students at Laurens District 55 High School. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we know our students learned so much from the opportunity.
