Please stop by the Dublin Community Recreation Center on July 24 or July 31 to try out one of the Dublin Police Department’s distracted driving simulators. The simulators provide a safe but realistic experience that shows the dangers of distracted driving.
During the school year, the simulators are used in Dublin City Schools buildings to provide hands-on experience for students. This summer they are being used in the Beyond Driver’s Ed class and making appearances at private businesses around town. You can experience a simulator at the DCRC on one of our community days.
Join us from 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the DCRC, located at 5600 Post Road
- Monday, July 24
- Monday, July 31
The Maria Tiberi Foundation donated two simulators to the Dublin Police Department. The foundation is named for Dublin resident Maria Tiberi, who lost her life to a distracted driving accident in September 2013.
Dublin has one of the toughest distracted driving laws in the state. In Dublin, distracted driving is a primary offense which means motorists can be pulled over for texting while driving, talking on a phone, using a navigational system – or anything that distracts them from driving.
Contact Officer Chuck Collier at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to inquire about having a simulator at your business or event.
