Event ScheduleBeginning 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!
