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.
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.
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 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!
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.
This was a win, win for all parties. The staff of PEERS Foundation had a great rapport with our students. The texting and driving experience is a must for all new drivers.
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 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 was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
Mike and his team were amazing to work with for the General Motors UofM recruiting events. Mike and his team were engaging, flexible and educated on the simulator.
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!
