Learn the Consequences of Impaired Driving
The Safety Village of South Dakota has driving simulators available to use at our Safety House. Participants experience the consequences of distracted and impaired driving without the reality of harming themselves and others.
If you have a group of teens 14-18 years of age please contact Safety Village to set up a time to experience the driving simulators.
The simulators have the feel of a real car. Participants are able to choose one of several scenarios. For example, one scenario allows them to experience what it is like to drive drunk. During the simulation, a police officer pulls them over and peers into their window. Participants are then given a field sobriety test. Another scenario prompts them to use their own phone while they text and drive.
The Safety Village also has a teen driving program Worst Decision Ever – that uses impairment and distracted googles with hands on activities to simulate the impairments of alcohol, marijuana, and texting and driving and the consequences of those actions.
- Full size and table-top simulators are available on site.
