Distracted Driving Simulator to be at Rice County Fair

Rice County Sheriff Troy Dunn told KDHL on Wednesday there will be a distracted driving simulator at the Rice County Fair on Friday evening.

Dunn said Kathy Cooper of the Rice County Safe Roads Coalition approached him about having the simulator at the fair.

He said distracted driving is not just about texting or being on your phone while driving, “it’s putting your makeup on, reading a newspaper, eating and drinking. Those things can be small distractions. Things that take your focus and concentration away from the road.”

The Rice County Sheriff noted his officers are “seeing way too much of it on the roads these days.”

The simulator is scheduled to be at the fair Friday from 6-8 in the evening at the Sheriff’s Command Center located just inside the east entrance to the fair. It is very weather dependent and is for those 15 and older.

You can enjoy a root beer compliments of College City Beverage after participating, and register for prizes including tickets to the Sunday Demolition Derby and Gas Cards.

Dunn says he is looking forward to using the simulator, which is being brought to the Rice County Fair by the Rice County Safe Roads Coalition, Rice County Sheriff’s Office and Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
