Also new this year is the “Alive Alive Driving Simulator”. You can try our handicapped driving simulator and experience drunk driving, drug use or distracted driving. Participants step into a real vehicle (with the battery disabled and the vehicle fixed) and put on a virtual reality headset. Sensors are connected to the vehicle’s accelerator/brake pedals and steering wheel, allowing the experience of drug driving to be unaffected. Upon exiting the vehicle, you will be presented with a mock quote detailing the effects of the simulation. An external LED monitor is installed near the vehicle to show in real time what the driver is experiencing in the simulation. Sponsored by Farm Bureau Insurance.
