Amberley Village to Host Distracted Driving Simulator October 27

The Amberley Village Police & Fire Department will host a Distracted Driving Traffic Safety Event at the Amberley Village Municipal Building at 7149 Ridge Road on Sunday, October 27, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The event is open to the public, and is  especially valuable for experienced drivers, although everyone can benefit.  In a recent study, more than 76% of Americans say they are good drivers.  But clearly there is an overconfidence bias that develops with increased experience, as 93% of Americans admit to unsafe driving behavior.

The study, which was conducted by insurance provider Esurance, showed that distracted driving as a category was the second-leading cause of automobile fatalities by common unsafe driving behaviors, including changing the radio or navigation, eating and texting.

Amberley Village invites everyone to experience the Distracted Driving Simulator, which gives a virtual reality experience in a safe 3-D setting.  See first-hand the potentially deadly consequences of glancing at your phone, talking, or texting while driving.   The Simulator replicates the interior of a car, complete with a steering wheel, pedals and an on-screen “dash” display (see graphic, right).  Participants must be 15 years old or older to use the simulator.  Reservations are recommended at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/avsimulator; however, limited space will be reserved for walk in participants.

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 five 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.
