D2 (Distracted Driving) Simulator

Mock Crash
 
A student assembly is held to show what happens in an alcohol and drug related crash. Makeup is applied to volunteer students to simulate crash victims before placing them in wrecked vehicles. As the assembly begins, local and state law enforcement, fire and emergency staff arrive on the scene to perform rescue efforts. Victims may be arrested, treated for injuries, or pronounced dead.
 
 
Judgment Day
 
The goal of Judgment Day is to discourage teens from driving under the influence. By creating a mock trial, the program shows what really happens to an underage DUI offender in the courtroom using local attorneys, judges and other court officials, as well as a jury of their peers.
 
Ghost Out
 
The Grim Reaper removes selected students from the classroom. Each student represents a victim of an alcohol and drug related crash. The students write their obituary and a memorial service is held for the student body where each victim is laid to rest and their obituary is read.

Impaired Driving Facts Tip Sheet
 
Fatal Vision Goggles
 
A specially designed and manufactured pair of goggles that simulate visual impairment caused by drugs or alcohol. A wearer's normal perceptions are distorted by the goggles, similar to the effects of intoxication. The goggles are intended to convince both the wearer and those observing that alcohol impairment makes activities with known risks, such as driving vehicles, very dangerous and life-threatening.
