UNITE’s Arrive Alive Tour is the nation’s number-one ranked drunk and distracted driving awareness event, as well as the first-and-only marijuana driving simulator in the country.

Arrive Alive uses a high-tech, state-of-the-art simulator that allows participants to drive while distracted, drunk, or drugged in a fully functioning vehicle without moving or being intoxicated. Participants experience real-life dangers without real-life consequences.

In 2021, traffic fatalities rose 10.9% nationwide according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The fatal crash rate for teens is three times greater than for drivers 20 and over, and driver distraction is responsible for more than 58% of teen crashes.

Young drivers (ages 16-20) are 17 times more likely to die in a collision when they have a BAC of .08% than when not under the influence. The Arrive Alive team’s mission is to educate drivers on the dangers and consequences of impaired and distracted driving, and to create life-long safe driving habits.

UNITE’s Arrive Alive Tour is proud to partner with Ashley Chapel Educational Center to bring this potentially life-changing event to the students. For more information, please call Nick Pitts at 888-436-3394.
