DUI Safety Simulator makes its way to Delmar High School

DELMAR, Del. – Delmar High School students got an up close and virtual look at the dangers of driving under the influence.

With prom just a couple of days away, the high school welcomed the Pennsylvania DUI Association and their safety simulator. The device allowed students to sit in a real car “cockpit” and experience dangerous impaired driving scenarios.

“Drunk driving claims the life about 4,300 teen lives a year and that’s 4,300 too many and then when you take that and now you compound other impairment type drugs that kids are experiencing you know we want them to have the opportunity to understand what that’s going to look like,” Karen Davis, State Farm Agent, said.

We are told having events like these also promotes awareness for parents to have conversations with their children about driving under the influence.

Organizers said they have been doing this partnership with the school for three years, but due to COVID, they couldn’t meet up in the past couple of years. So, this is their first time back since 2019.
