Driving Simulation 'Game' for Teens

Lately, there’s been a lot of attention on teen driving, specifically safety concerns—teens are one of the groups of drivers most easily distracted on the road with cell phones, friends, and crazy hormones running through them. In an effort to teach teenagers how to effectively drive, One Simple Decision, a driver-training simulator aimed at teens was displayed at the annual Lifesavers traffic-safety conference in Denver.

The simulator proves to be quite impactful as it comes off as a game yet highly educational. Unlike any other game however, if you end up crashing, you don’t just ‘start over’. One Simple Decision provides real life consequences of reckless driving—getting pulled over by a cop if you were driving too fast or even finding yourself on a stretcher after a car crash. The simulator also has a “distracted” or “impaired” option, featuring a friend doing what any other teenage passenger would do, nag and mess around with the driver.

The sequences are meant to teach teens how to deal with situations while driving—experiences not usually gained at a less then engaging Driver’s Ed course. Additionally, the system itself has an actual steering wheel to drive, what teen wouldn’t choose One Simple Decision over a classroom?
