TIMMINS POLICE HOST DISTRACTED DRIVING SIMULATION AT ECOLE SECONDAIRE CATHOLIQUE THERIAULT

The Timmins Police Service hosted a Distracted Driving Simulation at Ecole Secondaire Catholique Theriault over the noon hour.

The target audience is young drivers who overestimate their driving skills and who may not be aware of the dangers posed by using a communications or entertainment device while driving.

Hopefully, the message reached home with the intended demographic who are severely over-represented in traffic collision statistics linked to injury and or death.

Const Rick Lemieux made use of the Timmins Police Service’s Distracted Driving Simulator to help “drive” the message home.
