Arrive Alive at CHS: November 4
The Arrive Alive Tour will be at Cassville High School on Friday, November 4th, 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
UNITE’s Arrive Alive Tour® is the nation’s number-one ranked drunk and distracted driving awareness event, as well as the first-and-only marijuana driving simulator in the country. The Arrive Alive Tour uses a high-tech, state-of-the-art simulator that allows participants to drive while distracted, drunk, or drugged in a fully functioning vehicle without moving or being intoxicated. The simulator allows participants to experience the real-life dangers without the real life consequences.
In 2021, traffic fatalities rose 10.9% nationwide according to NHTSA. It is a crucial time to educate teen drivers on the dangers of impaired and distracted driving. The fatal crash rate for teens is 3 times greater than for drivers age 20 and over, and driver distraction is responsible for more than 58% of teen crashes. Young drivers (ages 16-20) are 17x more likely to die in a crash when they have a BAC of .08% than when they have not been drinking.
The Arrive Alive team's mission is to educate drivers on the dangers and consequences of impaired and distracted driving, and to create life-long safe driving habits. UNITE's Arrive Alive Tour has partnered with the Missouri Department of Transportation to bring this life changing event to Cassville High School.
