TOT in Norwich

Fall & Winter Turn Off Texting Demos Now Scheduling!

Turn Off Texting is a free demonstration that uses a golf cart to give young drivers a first-hand guided experience of the dangers of distracted driving. With support from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program and sponsors like AT&T, it travels to your community’s high school, anywhere in Vermont. If you haven’t yet worked with us to bring this hands-on educational experience to your region’s young drivers, learn more and schedule an autumn visit at http://www.yscvt.org. Dates are now being offered!

We’re also pleased to announce that a limited number of Turn Off Texting presentations will be available with a driving simulator beginning in November and continuing through the winter. We’re able to present this version of the TOT demonstration with a mobile classroom and realistic driving simulator that travels across Vermont when the weather is too cold to use golf carts. Driver Educators or community event organizers can visit http://www.yscvt.org to request a winter TOT demonstration; they’re being scheduled first-come, first-served and availability is limited. Find more information about the simulator program here.

Thanks for helping to spread the word about Turn Off Texting, a free community resource!
