Distracted driving


Peggy Revell

Steven Halvorsen navigated around the obstacle course set up in the Fort High gym last Wednesday in the Simulated Impaired DriviNg Experience (SIDNE) vehicle along with passenger Jason Strom. As the newest teaching tool for the Substance Abuse Prevention Team, the vehicle can be rigged to have a second-and-a-half delay in response time so youth can see how their own driving skills are affected by drugs, alcohol, and distractions.
