TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – Premier Health’s CareFlight took its Drive Smart program to Trotwood High School Friday.
They set up driving simulators to show teens what it is like when driving distracted or impaired. It was a real eye-opener for many students who tried to drive under those conditions.
“It’s the time of year when they are all excited, distracted, and unfortunately, there’s alcohol involved for some students. We’re trying to let them know it’s dangerous to drive distracted. It’s especially dangerous to drive impaired,” says Laura Cruea with Montgomery County Safe Communities.
Students were also asked to sign a pledge not to drive distracted, drink and drive, or get in a car with someone who has been drinking.
