Dangers of Distracted Driving Demonstration
Recently, at the Burrillville High School, Ms. DeMasco’s and Mr. Wignot’s health classes, in conjunction with the Burrillville Police Department, and supported by the Burrillville Prevention Action Coalition demonstrated the dangers of distracted driving to their juniors and seniors. The students attempted to drive a pedal car through a designated course while texting. They also utilized fatal vision goggles to experience what it is like to drive with impaired vision similar to that of an intoxicated driver.
Burrillville Citizen Police Academy graduated the 17th class on April 22nd at the Municipal Court Room of the Burrillville Police Station. All participants received a BPD t-shirt and a certificate of completion. Classes began in January for 12 weeks.
Our next class will start in January 2014!
