Save A Life Tour to visit Walton CSD
The Save A Life Tour, a comprehensive high-impact, safe-driving awareness program, will visit the Walton Central School District on Thursday, May 9. 
 
The program informs, educates, and demonstrates the potentially deadly consequences resulting from poor choices and decisions made by the operator of a motor vehicle. More specifically, it covers the following situations: 
 
• Driver experience: young drivers and driver behavior based on maturity
• Improper driver behavior: careless driving habits- speeding, turn signal use
• Safety restraints: proper seat belt usage
• Impaired driving: alcohol usage, controlled substance, drowsiness
• Distracted driving: cell phones, passenger activities
• Motorcycle: awareness, operation
 
The tour utilizes several methods to educate students, including video presentation, speaking presentation, interactive demonstration with simulators, pre- and post-surveys, as well as take-a-ways such as a pledge card and a wristband.
 
The tour will work with high school students at Walton.
 
“We thought this was an extremely important tour to bring into our school, especially as the weather starts to get warmer and more and more students are out enjoying themselves,” said Walton CSD Director of Technology Rick Robinson, who also serves as the district’s safety coordinator. “We want to make sure our students always are safe and remember how important it is to stay focused when driving and understanding the possible consequences if they are distracted.”
 
The day opens with an assembly for students, followed by the simulators and other experiences for students.
 
This program is run throughout the country, including the Department of Defense.
