In collaboration with the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC), the Kennebecasis, New Brunswick, Regional Police Force (KRPF) is launching a youth distracted driving campaign.
To aid the discussion on road safety, IBC has donated its desktop distracted driving simulator to the campaign. The aim of the simulation is to educate youth on the dangers of distracted driving, without the risk of being on the road. Young drivers have the opportunity to experience the consequences of "texting and driving" in a safe environment.
The launch is the first in a series of local school visits that are set to take place this fall. Members of the KRPF have partnered with IBC to remind students about the importance of road safety. The sessions will include engaging activities and conversation starters to help educate youth on the consequences of distracted driving and how to prevent it.
