"While you're there, visit the new and improved Distracted Driving Pavilion," says Kristina Toomey, Tradeshow and Sponsorship Specialist. "We've expanded its size and scope. It's absolutely hands down the best one we've done so far."
At the pavilion, delegates can assess their skills driving pedal carts through an obstacle course while wearing impairment goggles. The goggles simulate impairment from alcohol, marijuana, and over the counter drugs.
