Teens got eyeful on the dangers of drunken and distracted driving. There are apps that might help… Vadnais and his buddies were among the 160 teenagers, school advisers, resource officers and law enforcers from throughout Minnesota who attended a daylong Teen Safe Driving Summit on Thursday at the Rosemount Community Center…The driving simulator, called One Simple Decision, however, proved very popular. Brought to the summit by Todd Emanuel from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, it allowed teens to "virtually" drive down city streets while texting on the computer monitor or on their own cellphones.
