Arrive Alive Program on Texting & Drinking While Driving
UNITE’s Arrive Alive Tour 2011 Program to Educate on Dangers of Texting While Driving and Drunken Driving will be at Meredith College this week.
The Arrive Alive Tour from UNITE will visit Meredith College on November 15, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the courtyard between SMB and Harris Building.
Come out to the courtyard and test your skills! Free gift, hot chocolate and donuts for the first 50 participants.
UNITE’s Arrive Alive program uses a high-tech simulator, impact video, and a number of other resources to educate students about the dangers of texting while driving. The simulator allows students to experience in a controlled environment the potential consequences of distracted or drunken driving.
One of the most commonly recognized driving distractions is cell phone use. About 89 percent of all Americans have a cell phone, according to CTIA – The Wireless Association. Drivers under 20 years old have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
UNITE brings health and wellness programs to high school and college campuses across the nation. Their programs are designed to heighten awareness to the dangers and consequences of drunk driving and distracted driving.
