Today the United States Army visits Melissa High School with a 50-foot Distracted Driving Simulator.
Through various simulations, students in Officer Barrett’s Law Enforcement classes and Nurse Withers’ Health Science classes will learn how distracted driving can impact them and their fellow drivers. In addition, the Army has posted traffic safety facts which include statistics on how often talking, texting, and emailing while driving leads to crashes or near-crashes.
See photos of Officer Barrett’s third period class below.
