The impact of the 'Arrive Alive' tour in drunk driving accidents

Have you heard about the "Arrive Alive" tour? A realistic impaired and distracted driving simulator is making rounds through the nation in this important tour. Just this week, the tour made a stop at Illinois Wesleyan University so that young people in the area can safely experience the effect of alcohol and drugs on one's ability to drive.

The equipment used in the tour simulates impaired driving with a virtual reality headset. One of the students participating in the Illinois event expressed surprise at how real the simulation felt. She said that the simulation showed her how impairment affects her ability to operate a vehicle safely.

We were pleased to learn that the university participated in the simulation. Like the people who these tour events, we hope that learning how alcohol and drugs affect driving ability will reduce the number of drunk driving accidents that occur in our state and across the country.

Unfortunately, we have seen the consequences of impaired driving in the faces of the clients we have helped find a legal remedy. We know how deeply these consequences run and we would love to see a reduction in these entirely preventable drunk driving accidents. Severe or catastrophic physical injuries, debilitating emotional scars and devastated families left with the loss of a loved one are just a few of these consequences.

You probably understand that you can take legal action if you have suffered an injury in a drunk driving accident. Until we all reach a place where these crashes no longer occur, such legal action is one of the most effective ways to deter driving while impaired. We hope that the Arrive Alive tour will also become a strong deterrent for the youths of our nation.

To those who have suffered injury or the loss of a loved one due to distracted and impaired driving, we invite you to browse our personal injury pages to find out if a legal solution will help in your recovery.
