On March 12, Stephens College kicked off Transportation Safety Week with a focus on impaired driving. Stephens students, faculty and staff got to try out virtual reality goggles, as well as sign a distracted driving pledge and Vision Zero 2030 banner.

A free public lecture on the same topic will be held on Wednesday, March 13. Stephens will welcome guest speaker Matt Devoti of the nationally recognized EndDD.org (End Distracted Driving). In his presentation titled “Distracted Driving: End the Epidemic,” he will provide an interactive science-based presentation on the dangers of distracted driving. The event will be held at 7 p.m. in the Kimball Ballroom of Lela Raney Wood Hall. (Read more about event.)
