Cutting-edge gaming technology designed to prevent destructive driving behaviors among teens and young adults brought to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. Most crashes can be prevented with the right education and experience. This is why Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC has partnered with The Allstate Foundation to develop the “FOCUS - Action Against Distraction” driver simulation project. Our staff will guide students though each step of the program. The simulator uses high-definition video scenes and gaming technology to create unique situations that may be too dangerous to experience while driving a real automobile. The program focuses exclusively on distracted and impaired driving, allowing students to see the consequences associated with each type of driving behavior. This program is designed to modify driving behaviors by illustrating the consequences of their choices made behind the wheel so they don’t repeat their mistakes in reality.
The Allstate Foundation funds the FOCUS project with a generous gift of $35,000.00 for 2016-2017.
