Wyoming sends safety CD-ROMs to schools. (Public Information and Information Exchange).

In September 2002, in cooperation with the Wyoming DOT, FHWA's Wyoming Division Office sent interactive CD-ROMs on pedestrian and driver safety to school districts and driver education classes throughout Wyoming. The CD-ROMs, "Moving Safely Across America--The Interactive Highway Safety Experience" and "Safer Journey--Interactive Pedestrian Safety Awareness," will help students become better drivers by increasing their awareness of how to react to different driving situations.

According to Carol Graham of the Wyoming Division Office, the importance and potential impact of sending Out the "Safer Journey" CD-ROM heightened on October 4, 2002, when a 12-year-old boy was killed trying to cross Interstate 25 in Casper, WY "After having such a tragic incident occur in the State," Graham says, "we hope that the CD-ROM highlighting the risks associated with children crossing streets will be a powerful and timely learning tool for teachers and students."

The Wyoming Division Office plans to contact county school district administrators and driver education instructors throughout 2003 to evaluate each district's use of the CD-ROMs.
