As you probably know, our law firm helps injury victims – and that includes the innocent victims of drunk drivers. Every day, we see how bad choices turn peoples' lives upside down. That's why we sponsor a variety of programs designed to prevent drunk driving accidents.
Next week, we are proud to bring a powerful program to five area high schools. The Edgar Snyder Save A Life Tour isn't your average anti-drunk driving program. These students will see firsthand the tragic reality of what happens to thousands of victims of drunk driving accidents every year.
Here's a preview of the Edgar Snyder Save A Life Tour:
Following a graphic video and personal testimony from a drunk driving accident survivor, students will have a chance to "drive" a multi-million dollar DUI simulator – the same one used to train pilots and military personnel worldwide. The DUI simulator's interior resembles a Ford Taurus and reacts differently to each student based on size and weight, enabling students to feel like they're actually driving a car. Students will navigate a 50-square-mile virtual landscape filled with various environments and road conditions. They will be able to see their control of the vehicle and reaction time change as their level of impairment increases. A casket will sit nearby the simulator, serving as a constant reminder of what can happen to teens who make bad choices simply to have a ‘good time.'
The Edgar Snyder Save A Life Tour schedule is as follows:
Over 2,000 teens ages 16-19 die annually from accidents involving alcohol, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2011 alone, nearly a million teens age 16 and older drove under the influence of alcohol. Young drivers are 17 times more likely to die in an accident when one or more drivers are under the influence of alcohol.
