TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Distracted driving comes in many forms and the consequences can be deadly.

That's a lesson the community learned on Wednesday.

The ‘Save-a-Life’ tour stopped at Ivy Tech Community College in Terre Haute. It included a traveling drunk and distracted driving simulation center.

We talked to a student who went through the program. She says the feeling of driving drunk was eye-opening.

“I never want to do it, it was kind of scary and a little weird to not be able to control the car as well as I normally do,” said Catherine Airhart, student at Ivy Tech. “And it's just not a situation I want to put myself in.”

This program is presented to high schools and colleges across the united states.
