Simulator teaches importance of wearing seat belt

MILAN, Tenn.-Students at Milan High School got the chance to learn first hand what it feels like to be in a car crash. Dozens of students participated in the event Thursday with a simulator, operated by the the Milan Police Department. It shows participants what a crash feels like going 10 miles per hour with their seat belt on. Officials with the department said it is an excellent way to teach drivers of all ages the dangers of not wearing a seat belt. “So many people don’t understand the importance of having that seat belt on. Even when you are going at a low speed you can still lose control of the vehicle you can still be moved out of your seat,” said Officer Nick Glenn of the Milan Police Department. Milan police said they will have the simulator for about a week. In case you missed it, they will be doing the demonstration again at the “Dog Days Festival” on Saturday.
