San Francisco-based Posit Science is donating $1 million in software licenses for the innovative new DriveSharp program, to be distributed free of charge to every public library in the Commonwealth through a grant application program run by AAA. More than 11 thousand software licenses will be distributed.
MassDOT RMV Division Registrar Rachel Kaprielian joined representatives of AAA Southern New England, Posit Science, and Newton Mayor David Cohen in announcing the initiative Tuesday at the Newton Free Public Library.
DriveSharp is an interactive series of game-like computer exercises proven in independent studies to improve reaction time, reduce car crash risk by up to 50 percent, and improve stopping distance by as much as 22 feet at 55 miles per hour. It has been tested and recommended by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. In most cases, patrons have the option of using DriveSharp at their local library, or they may borrow the CD-ROM for use at home.
