This fall, Young Driver’s hosted an “Eyes on the Road” event to raise awareness about distracted driving. Community members, including Police Chief participated in a challenge to better understand the effects of distracted driving. Participants drove through a timed course set up in the Station Mall parking lot, once while dealing with distractions, including answering a phone call and responding, counting aloud, putting on sunglasses, and avoiding a cyclist. Then participants completed the course a second time, but distraction free. The two times were compared, and time penalties were added for errors made such as failing to see the cyclist or running into a cone. In all cases, the distracted-free course was completed quicker and with fewer errors.
