The Panuska College of Professional Studies will host an "Awareness Fair for Distracted and Impaired Driving" on Monday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the first floor of the DeNaples Center. Students can take the pledge to “Not Text and Drive" and participate in a "hands-on" look at what happens when distracted or impaired while driving.
Kipp Adcock from Public Safety will talk to students about the dangers of impaired driving and involve students in a DUI Goggle activity. Bill McQuilken, a trauma prevention coordinator from the Lehigh Valley, will speak to students while assisting them on simulators, which look like computer games complete with a working steering wheel and gas/brake pedals, which put the student in control of the simulated vehicle while being distracted. Eileen Miller, a Scranton resident, will share her son’s tragic story and an ATT video – The Last Text – will be played for students.
