Coastal Bend College illustrates driving while drunk, texting

 The National Arrive Alive Tour 2011 comes to Coastal Bend College on Feb. 28, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is one of the highest-ranked drunk driving and distracted driving prevention programs in America. The program uses high tech simulation, impact video and a number of other resources to educate students about the dangers of drinking and driving, as well as texting while driving.

UNITE presents the Arrive Alive Tour for all level of students from elementary school to university. Programs are designed to heighten awareness to the dangers and consequences of drunk driving and distracted driving.

Recalling the old adage: there is an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, Patrick DeGrasse, UNITE executive director, says, “We want to be that ‘ounce of prevention’ before the ‘cure’ is needed. We endeavor to continue to be the number one health and wellness organization in America.”

UNITE brings its prevention program to schools, colleges and universities around the country.

The tour travels to CBC Alice Campus on March 2, 9:30 a.m.-noon and to CBC Kingsville Campus on March 2, 2:30-5 p.m.
