Simulator teaches dangers of driving while distracted

Students at Missouri Southern will have the opportunity to experience the dangers of distracted driving first hand.

Kramer Entertainment, Inc. will provide a presentation of the effects of driving while using phones and other devices on Oct 17th.

Kramer Entertainment, Inc. said, “Our objective is to use every method at our disposal to bring home the shocking reality of the dangerous practice of distracted driving because it has eclipsed drunk driving as the Number One safety concern of the driving public”

This company will provide the use of a driving simulator in the Lions Den. Presentations of personal experiences with the consequences of distracted driving will also be available.

Craig Gullett, Coordinator of Student Activities, said, “People just need to realize how quickly just glancing down or, you know, updating a status while you’re driving, how dangerous that actually is.”
