Students at East Meadow High School received a lesson on the impact of distracted driving from the International Save a Life Tour on March 22.

The Save a Life Tour is a comprehensive, high-impact safe driving awareness program that informs, educates and demonstrates the potentially deadly consequences that can result from poor choices and decisions made by the operator of a motor vehicle.

The presentation was followed by hands-on driving simulations. One simulator was constructed to realistically portray the way impaired driving would feel and the other focused on texting while driving. Students had the opportunity to experience the difficulty of both situations and further understand the importance of always driving sober and without distraction.

The district thanks the Save a Life Tour for visiting East Meadow High School to create awareness on the dangers of unsafe driving.
