Over the course of three sessions, Earl L. Vandermeulen High School seniors learned about the dangers of distracted driving through a Stony Brook University program. During the sessions, the students heard from speakers, watched an informational video and took part in interactive activities, including attempting to walk while distracted by their phones and driving using a driving simulator.   “The goal of the program is to emphasize to students the importance of paying attention to the road while driving and to recognize the danger that exists when distracted,” said Danielle Turner, director of health, physical education and athletics.
