The Texas State Technical College Marshall Police Department along with the Residential Housing Association presents “Driving Distracted”.
The event will be held Wednesday, February 29 from 10:00am-2:00pm on Residential Parking lot on the TSTC Marshall Campus.
Driving Distracted aims to show students the dangers of driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Texas Department of Transportation will also be on hand to help with the demonstration.
Students will wear goggles meant to mimic the effects of driving under the influence. Students will then drive a golf cart through traffic cones. Hitting a cone is the equivalent of side swiping a car.
