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.
Our students and staff loved this event. It was very informative and students loved the simulation. Students talked about about how meaningful the message was and saw the damage that can occur through distracted driving.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for visiting our school and helping to educate our students about distracted driving.
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.
