Edgar Snyder & Associates Save A Life Tour
Working With Local Students to Prevent Dangerous Driving
Car accidents are the number one cause of death for teenagers in the United States. It's a devastating problem that continues to impact our communities, our families, and our lives. But it's a preventable problem, and one that we're committed to stopping.
With the help of students from around Western Pennsylvania, we can fight against the tragedies caused by drunk and distracted driving. Our Save a Life tour features state-of-the-art, multi-media presentations to connect with students and illustrate the dangers of risky driving decisions.
Engaging Students to Take a Stand
Our one-of-a-kind demonstration features cutting-edge driving simulators that give students the first hand experience of the effects of drunk driving. With slowed reaction times, impaired vision, and more, these teens finally get to see the true dangers of driving drunk.
There are distracted driving simulators as well. They provide students with the opportunity to witness how texting while driving affects their response time, road awareness, and more.
Along with the simulators, students witness graphic, realistic videos of actual DUI & distracted driving accidents and emergency room scenes. They also hear real testimonials from victims of these driving accidents. The Save a Life Tour creates powerful, lasting impressions on teens who might otherwise be unaware of the serious risks posed by drunk or distracted driving.
Just see what the students had to say:
"It really gave me a reality check. I will walk away and remember what I saw."
"More real than others I've seen. It doesn't sugarcoat anything."
"I always knew there was drunk driving, but this made it real."
