Nebraska Safety Council Teaches Culler Middle School Students About Distracted Driving

November 28, 2011

The Nebraska Safety Council educated students at Culler Middle School this past Thursday about the dangers of distracted driving. Culler is one of the four LPS schools involved in NTC's after-school program "Roads, Rails and Race Cars." Mr. Tracey Webb, who is the driving safety programs director for the council, demonstrated the effects of distracted driving using its new SIDNE go-cart.

SIDNE stands for Simulated Impaired Driving Experience. Students rode along with after-school program mentors during the simulations. Culler is the only middle school in Nebraska to have experienced the SIDNE go-cart. Nebraska Trucking Association President Larry Johnson also stopped by to witness the fun.
