The Save A Life Tour visited students in grades 7-12 yesterday to spread awareness on safe driving. 

The Save A Life Tour is a comprehensive high impact safe driving awareness program that informs, educates, and demonstrates the potentially deadly consequences resulting from poor choices and decisions made by the operator of a motor vehicle. The program specifically places emphasis on the following driving situations: Distracted Driving, Impaired Driving, Driver Experience, Improper Driver Behavior, and Seat Belt Usage.

The Save A Life Tour utilizes several methods for educating including a video presentation, speaking presentation, interactive demonstration with simulators (pictured below), pre and post surveys and take-a-ways including a pledge card and a wristband.

This is the program the Department of Defense uses as well as the Connecticut D.O.T. MO D.O.T., Michigan Highway Safety and more informing students on the dangers of driving impaired and driving while texting.
