On April 29 students at Marion High School got to welcome the Arrive Alive simulator. The program takes students through three different simulations: one driving while texting, another of driving under the influence of alcohol, and one under the influence of THC. They learned just how difficult it is to maintain control of a vehicle under those various circumstances, and hopefully learned to never drive under the influence. The educational program was funded in part by Farmers State Bank, Linn Area Credit Union, and UICCU.
Working with a committee of dedicated professionals and volunteers arrive alive DRIVE SOBER® has been able to operate an effective campaign involving the production and distribution of materials and messaging to raise awareness around the risks and prevention opportunities relating to impaired driving.
