Beginning on Wednesday, February 21, UNC Police, AT&T, the UNC Trauma Center and the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health are partnering to host a driving simulator where students, faculty and staff will be invited to experience a virtual reality driving experience that simulates their ability to drive while distracted.

More than 300,000 car crashes each year are caused by some form of distracted driving, and in 2015, 3,477 people were killed in distracted driving crashes. Distracted driving has become a serious national traffic safety issue, as more and more people use smart phones and text, post, glance, email & search while driving.

Try driving distracted (without the risk) in a driving simulator, and test your ability to avoid an accident!
