This summer, we STEM Access students are learning about transportation. We’ve learned about the difference between drunk driving and sober driving, and also texting while driving. In just one year, 32,885 people died on American roads.
As STEM students, we used a car simulator to learn about reaction time. We also have done some calculations about reaction time in different aspects of driving such as sight distance, stopping sight distance, and passing sight distance.
- The sight distance is how far you can see down the road.
- The stopping sight distance is how far you need to be able to see to safely stop in time.
- The passing sight distance is the distance you need to see in order to pass another vehicle.
