The Saratoga Automobile Museum has been awarded a generous amount from the Stewart’s Holiday Match and State Farm to support the Museum’s Distracted Driving Initiative.
Since the program was initiated in August 2015, deputies from the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department, area educators and countless museum visitors have used the state of the art simulators to learn how a few seconds of distraction can lead to tragedy and result in injury to yourself and others. In 2016, a trailer allowed us to take our Distracted Driving Initiative on the road to area high schools and businesses impacting over 9,000 individuals. The funds from these grants will be used to expand our impact to over 12,000 drivers in 2017.
