The Rollover Simulator is a seatbelt safety awareness program run by the Rhode Island State Troopers. The “rollover” mimics a 25-mph rollover crash and the consequences of occupants, both adult and children, not wearing their seatbelts. In reality, most crashes happen at much higher speeds which makes the presentation that much more effective at demonstrating the importance of wearing a seatbelt. This presentation brings the issue of restraint use to life and gives its viewers a tangible portrayal of how vital it is to buckle up; every trip, every time. This presentation is FREE!

 

To book please contact Kelsey Lynch, RIDOT Highway Safety Program Coordinator.

ThinkFast is a unique game show style assembly that can be brought to your school in the coming year! During ThinkFast, students will be educated on Distracted Driving, Impaired Driving, Speed, Occupant Protection, and RI General law. The retention of information during ThinkFast is high due to the interactive, pop-culture design of the performance. The student audience is broken up into teams during which they compete against one another while learning at the same time the importance of smart decision making throughout all manners of traffic safety emphasis areas.
