S.I.D.N.E. - Simulated Impaired Driving Experience is another youth empowerment education experience that involves our High School medical responder education their peers on the dangers and consequences of impaired driving.
The youth set up course and run a real driver controlled go-cart on a course which becomes especially challenging when the go-cart is put in distracted mode (every input by driver is delayed by 1 ½ seconds) which shows the driver the impact of driving distractions when they don’t focus.
The first responders also have developed their own personal educational messages for S.I.D.N.E. making this a more meaningful impact on other youth.
This package is one of three only in Canada and has been used since 2010.
