This summer, incoming seniors at Carmel High School were invited to participate in a behind-the-wheel driving experience that teaches the real dangers and consequences of distracted and impaired driving.
The SIDNE (simulated impaired driving experience) training offered engaging and hands-on activities about the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other drugs, and the dangers of distracted driving. Students participated in tasks that safely simulated attempting to operate a vehicle while impaired, including driving a go-kart around a track in the parking lot, sorting objects while wearing goggles that blurred their vision, and completing other tasks while being distracted.
Participation in the experience allows the students to enter the lottery for a space in the parking lot at the school for the 2022-23 school year. See more photos from the experience.
