THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - On Tuesday, Students at Thomas University learned the effects of distracted driving.
It's the reality of our fast paced world, everyone can send a quick text in just a matter of seconds.
"I feel like when they pick up that phone, it's an everyday part of their life, they don't realize the effects it could cause," said student Courtney Rosa.
Although it's a simulator, it's no laughing matter and thankfully this was just a lesson, a sobering one at that.
"I was texting of course, driving off the road and a collision I failed to stop, its disappointing" said Christina Jones, Thomas University Student Activities Coordinator.
"I don't think I would ever be able to drive again honestly. That would be pretty scaring for me to know that because of me, I killed someone because I was careless while driving," said Jones.
A valuable lesson for these students before they head off for spring break.
"I think college students don't realize that right now means the rest of their life, if they get in a car accident or a DUI it means the rest of their life," said Rosa.
After all, good decisions really do prevent collisions.
