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.
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.
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 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.
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.
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
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.
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!
Our kids were highly engaged and the information was well received. I appreciated it so much and hope we can have another outing next school year!
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.
