Daniel Stark’s Parallel Park was back at First Friday in downtown Bryan on July 5. This month, we set up a distracted driving simulator (on loan from Texas Agrilife Extension service) so visitors could see the effects of texting and driving firsthand, using a realistic computer program with steering wheel controls. We also handed out free “Text, Drive, Crash” thumb rings to remind the community about the dangers of distracted driving.

Jacob Asbill provided live music to get our crowd dancing, and the
Chef Tai food truck was on hand serving delicious Asian fusion fare. We also had homemade ice cream for sale, with the proceeds benefiting Healing Faith Missions. Thanks to the people of Bryan for coming out and having a good time!
