Islip students get lesson in how to be responsible drivers
Some Islip students got a lesson in how to be responsible drivers on Tuesday.
The International Save a Life Tour visited Islip High School with virtual reality driving simulators to provide hands-on driving experience for students. The tour covered impaired driving, seat belt usage and driving experience.
It's part of the school's safe driving awareness program to educate teens on the risk of getting behind the wheel distracted.
"We're hoping the impact will be that they think before they drink and drive, and while they're driving, they won't text and drive," says PTSA president Stacey Zurbaran.
Students took part in a presentation and got time on the simulator.
