Ohio dealership hosts distracted driving simulators

Ricart Automotive Group in Columbus, Ohio, is hosting two driving simulators at its Ford dealership and Used Car Factory this month so members of the public can come and experience the dangers of distracted driving first-hand.

Users can try making a phone call while the simulator sends a car or a dog into the driverês lane. The simulators are on loan from Mariaês Message, a community group started by Dom Tiberi, whose daughter Maria died in a distracted driving accident.

The dealer group is so impressed with the simulator that it plans to acquire its own for permanent use later this summer, reports Edmunds.com.
