Simulator Shows Dangers of Speed, Drink and Phones

21 April 2007

 A new online simulator to prove to drivers the dangers of being behind the wheel when travelling too fast, after drinking or when using a mobile phone has been launched by RoSPA.

It shows how speed, weather and impairments dramatically affect stopping distances and result in crashes and pedestrian deaths.

By logging on to www.stoppingdistances.org.uk/ motorists can see how long it takes to stop when a child dashes out from behind a van to retrieve a ball bouncing in the road.
