Distracted Driving Prevention On and Off the Job
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 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.
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.
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 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 students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
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!
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.
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.
Your team was amazing! Jordan, Cindy and Mike did such a great job with out students at Harbor Beach, and our kids has a blast in the simulator.
