Arrive Alive Tour makes stop at Tech for Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week

Posted: Updated:

Texas Tech's RISE (Risk Intervention and Safety Education) office hosted the UNITE's Arrive Alive Tour for national Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week.

The tour uses a high tech simulator, an impact video with a number of other resources to educate the public about the dangers of drunk driving.

"The Arrive Alive Tour is really awesome for students," RISE department representative Joe Pfund said. "It's an interactive way. They get to behind the wheel, the real Jeep Liberty. They have to get in the car, reposition their seat correctly, put their seat belt on, hold their hands at ten and two on the wheel, and then they put their helmet on. Then, it puts a simulated scenery or street in front of them."

Every two minutes a person is injured in an accident that involves drunk driving. Two out of three people will be involved in a drunk driving accident in their lifetime.
