Ivy Tech Using Simulators to Show Dangers of Driving

Local News

Ivy Tech is working to raise awareness by showing the dangers of distracted and impaired driving.

Two simulators are giving students and adults the opportunity to see what happens if you drink and drive, or text and drive.

Ivy Tech officials say it’s a way to show the realities of choices.

Director of Student Life LaNell Lucius says, “None of us ever want to experience the loss of a loved one or to be the person responsible for causing an accident where someone is injured or killed. This is a very electronic way and more tame way of showing what the impact could be if people make wrong decisions.”

Of course, both texting and drinking while driving are illegal.
