2014 Distracted Driving Tour

In January 2014, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital joined Grayslake Central High School officials in sponsoring a seminar for students to educate them about the dangers of distracted driving.

The “Save a Life Tour“ presents eight hours of multimedia information about distracted driving, including simulators to show students how focus is lost and reaction time changes when distracted by calling or texting while driving. Students also heard first-hand accounts of people involved in distracted driving accidents.

Below are photos from the event in Grayslake. Read the press release for complete details.
