Post date: Sep 25, 2018 6:22:36 PM

The International Save A Life Tour will visit Wells High School on October 19, 2018. All WHS students are invited to check out this safe driving program that includes a 1.5 million dollar Impaired Simulator and a quarter million dollar Distracted Driving Simulator that has visited the Pentagon and traveled around the world with the Department of Defense.

A schoolwide presentation for the student body will commence at 7:30 am followed by ‘hands on’ driving experiences provided throughout the school day to students.

This is the same program that the U.S. Department of Defense and multiple departments of transportation ─ including the Connecticut DOT, Missouri DOT, and Rhode Island DOT ─ employ to inform students on the dangers of driving impaired and driving while texting.

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 including distracted driving, impaired driving, improper driver behavior, seat belt usage and other situations one might encounter driving.

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