Tampa, Fla. – On Oct. 30, 2008, Trooper Reggie Edwards and Sgt. Steve Gaskins worked with Hillsborough Community College students to host a special service learning project to promote driver safety and awareness on the college’s Dale Mabry Campus. Hundreds of students watched dummies fly from the FHP Rollover Simulator, while others attempted DUI sobriety exercises using Fatal Vision DUI simulation goggles. All attendees received literature on seat belts and safe driving tips. Many students had the opportunity to speak directly to Gaskins and Edwards, asking questions about current driving topics including road rage, aggressive driving, distracted driving, Florida’s law regarding seat belt use, penalties for traffic infractions and many other traffic-related issues.
