Police Send Students Powerful Message During Distracted Driving Awareness Week

The Jazz Bear makes a visit to Herriman HighStudents at Herriman High School are getting some stark reminders about the dangers and possible consequences of being a distracted driver.

Unified Police have partnered with Herriman High to bring a car that was demolished in a distracted driving accident to school where it is on display outside in the front of the building all week. During lunch students have the opportunity to put virtual reality headsets on, giving them a personal look at the consequences of distracted driving.

Sgt. Siren, police officers and the Jazz Bear have also been at the school during lunch to get the attention of students and raise awareness of what can happen when anyone drives distracted, impaired, drowsy or without a seat belt.

Thanks to Unified Police for helping send this important and life-saving message to young people.
