Distracted driving kills: RCC events show how

Four multimedia presentations at Rappahannock Community College on October 14 and 15 will give the college’s students and staff, plus interested members of the public, an opportunity to learn just how dangerous it is to let your attention wander while driving. Distracted driving has eclipsed drunk driving as the Number One safety concern of the driving public; the “Save a Life” Tour from Kramer Entertainment, Inc., was developed to provide interactive, hands-on simulations that demonstrate the deadly consequences of this practice to students at high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation.

Distracted-DrivingThe presentations will take place in the student lounges on both RCC campuses. Audiences for the 12:30 p.m. events at Warsaw on October 14, and at Glenns on the 15th, are expected to consist mainly of RCC students, while repeat performances at 4:30 p.m. on both days will, it is hoped, draw area high school students with their friends and families. Each of the programs will be run by a representative of Kramer Entertainment, who, after a graphic video showing the devastating effects of distracted driving, will relate personal experiences, quote statistics, and answer audience questions. Attendees will then find out how various distractions affect their reactions by way of the “Save a Life” Simulator, which uses virtual experiences to bring home the very real and often fatal consequences of poor choices. The presenter will discuss participants’ individual results to make sure that in each case they thoroughly understand how and why their driving efficiency was impaired.

The four programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please call RCC’s student activities coordinator, Dean Taylor, at 804-333-6734.
