InGear — A New Program from
Posit Science & AAA
While teens make up only 6% of all drivers, they account for more than 12% of drivers involved in fatal crashes. To address this disheartening statistic and better prepare teens for the road ahead, AAA has partnered with Posit Science to develop InGear, a supplemental driver training program. The InGear program is designed to improve driver awareness and focus by engaging young drivers in three core areas:
- Enhancing visual skills.
- Improving attention and response time.
- Decreasing distracted driving.
What may seem like simple video games are actually brain fitness programs loaded with scientific exercises to sharpen young drivers’ cognitive skills. The end result is a more engaged student and, more important, a better-prepared and safer driver.
Your teen will complete three online training exercises including:
Andromedus X: Keep track of moving objects in the center of your vision while staying alert to potential hazards in the periphery.
Hazard Highway: Make rapid decisions as objects approach at various speeds while staying alert to common road hazards.
Hey Rube: Rapidly move your eyes around a scene while challenging your visual memory.
Eligibility and Cost
- Teen drivers ages 14-19 are eligible for the program.
- InGear training is free to the first 5,000 individuals who register.
