Arrive Alive simulator mimics drunk driving for AWC students

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Arrive Alive is the first simulator of its kind giving students at Arizona Western College (AWC) a glimpse of what it's like to drive under the influence of marijuana/alcohol and distracted driving.

Participants are required to put on virtual goggles that put them behind the wheel of a vehicle that's being driven on a roadway.

Arrive Alive travels across the country and is targeting the youth who they say are more likely to be influenced to drive distracted or under the influence.

The simulator is the first of its kind where it provides a simulation for driving under the influence of marijuana.

With marijuana becoming legal in more and more states, according to Arrive Alive representatives, there has been a growing concern of drivers being high while driving.

The tour will finish off it's Yuma County run at AWC in San Luis from 10 am to 4 pm.
