About the Simulator
Texting while driving can have tragic consequences. In fact, one in three deaths on Manitoba roads involves a distracted driver. That’s why Manitoba Public Insurance developed this texting and driving simulator – so you can experience the dangers of this risky driving behaviour for yourself.
You need a smartphone, computer and internet access to use the simulator.
First, you’ll connect your phone. Then, you’ll use your keyboard to steer, accelerate and brake while sending and receiving texts.
Once you’ve experienced firsthand the dangers of being distracted behind the wheel, we encourage you to take the pledge to not text and drive, and invite your friends to do the same. Think about it – if you're texting, who's driving?
