Distracted Driving (ages 16+/Juniors & Seniors)

We educate high school students on the dangers of distracted driving by reviewing the 4 D’s (drowsy, drunk, drugged, and distracted). We replicate the feeling of impaired driving by using a distracted driving simulator and the One Simple Decision® program. One Simple Decision is the world’s first simulation-based impaired and distracted driving program designed to prevent destructive driving behaviors among teens and young adults.

Our distracted driving course can be taught in school classrooms or at our facility.

Please call (716) 338-0171 or contact us for more information, or email Chautauqua Safety Village instructor Diane directly at diane@chautauquasafetyvillage.com.

What Is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system — anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.
