Distracted Driving Prevention On (and off) the Job
- Policy – Why it’s important; Who it applies to; how to create it.
- Education – What employees need to know: how to make a lasting impact.
- Technology – What’s available: how it supports policy and education; which apps prevent manual cell phone use by the driver.
- Education – How to implement policies: which tech solution; what the ROI really is.
Combining informational and technological resources from strategic partners within the commercial safety sector, the PEERS foundation, a501(c)3. has created a one-of-its-kind, distracted driving prevention program for the workplace, incorporating PEERS “P.E.T.E.” executive overview, as well as its augmented reality distracted distracted driving education simulator (ARDDES). This program addresses the epidemic of distracted driving across the spectrum of commercial trucking and transportation, corporate and municipal fleets, heavy equipment operators, sales and service personnel, and government sectors. Anywhere people drive, PEERS foundation is there -working with employers, employees, insurers, and risk reduction professionals to support the goals of reducing costs, mitigating risks, and (above all) saving lives.
Thank you for visiting our school and helping to educate our students about distracted driving.
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 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
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.
It was a great success! We are hopeful that it will make a huge difference in distracted driving among the students who experienced the simulator, but also the kids that they tell about it.
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.
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.
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.
I just wanted to share how much fun our students had with the texting and driving simulator event. The presenters were knowledgeable, engaging and very talented in their presentation to the students.
I just want to thank you so much for having the driving simulator come to Seymour High School this week. The students learned a lot from this experience. The feedback was more than positive!
