The Arrive Alive Tour® from UNITE will be visiting Bossier Parish Community College on Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

ArriveAliveLogoUNITE’s Arrive Alive Tour® program uses a high-tech simulator, impact video, and a number of other resources to educate the public about the dangers of drunk driving and texting while driving. The simulator allows students to experience the potential consequences of drunk and distracted driving in a controlled environment.

One of the most commonly recognized driving distractions is cell phone use. About 89 percent of all Americans have a cell phone, according to CTIA – The Wireless Association. Drivers under 20 years old have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

UNITE brings health and wellness programs to high school and college campuses across the nation. Their programs are designed to heighten awareness to the dangers and consequences of drunk and distracted driving. Their events have a powerful impact on students to reinforce the subjects that schools and parents teach them daily.
