The city of Mesa Transportation Department hosted a surprise mock car crash at Desert Ridge High School on March 1. Students and teachers were surprised with a real-life simulation of what unfolds when distracted driving gets behind the wheel.

Recent data shows 7-in-10 people engage in smartphone activities while driving, like checking email, posting to social and even snapping selfies, said Amy McConnell, with the Mesa Transportation Department.

Desert Ridge students participating in the mock crash are theater students who were in complete moulage/make-up as the crash unfolded in front of 800-plus students on Thursday in the school’s football stadium. The Mesa Fire and Medical response crew was in action, including a medical helicopter landing, as well as the Mesa Police Department.

  1. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this information together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant
    amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
