We all know the dangers of texting or operating other electronic devices while driving. But, many young drivers are not changing their behavior. Due to many requests we've received, 3 Monkeys Inflatables is now offering a unique distracted driving program and simulator for your campus. With the epidemic of distracted driving, it's critical for the safety of high school, college drivers, as well as adults.
The simulator is set up in a way that allows participants to see the dangers of distracted driving first hand in a safe environment. Participants start out by getting familiar with driving and operating the vehicle (3-4 minutes). After becoming familiar they are instructed to text "GO" to the number we provide them while continuing to drive. The number texts back pregenerated questions that are relevant to your participants or your event. While the participants are texting and driving weather conditions and road hazards continue to change making infractions and accidents almost unavoidable (4-6 minutes). The combination of texting, driving, and changing conditions really drives home the idea that distracted driving is not worth the risks and dangers that come with it. Once finished with the simulator experience particpants have the ability to take the pledge not to text and drive and get a thumb ring to wear while driving as a reminder.
We have drunk goggles available as an add on option after the distracted driving where participants would put down the phones and would try driving with a pair of goggles that are equivalent to having a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08%. This option would be the last part of the simulator experience (2-3 minutes).
