Carle Place students get virtual lessons on safe driving

Allstate Insurance held the event 'Reality Rides' on May 15, 2014 at Carle Place High School, where students were shown the dangers of distracted driving, using driving simulation experiences featuring virtual reality. Using the car's steering wheel, gas and brake pedals, the driver is tasked with driving while also attempting to text, talk on the phone and enter navigation system directions.
