As the simulation exercises concluded, 57.7% indicated that they would change behaviors to never drive while distracted and not let others engage in distracting behaviors. Other results from this experience:

  • 96.2% students responded that they sometimes or frequently text while driving
  • 15.4% have driven while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  • 48.1% have experienced or know someone that has been involved in a distracted driving-related accident
