InGear

What is InGear?

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for drivers age 16-19. That’s why at AAA, we work to help prepare teens for the road. We’ve partnered with Posit Science®, a leading provider of brain training programs, to bring you InGear. InGear is an online program designed to help make the teen brain more like that of an experienced driver even before they’re behind the wheel. 

InGear aims to improve visual search, visual attention, and ability to adjust in poor visibility conditions with these three exercises:

  • ANDROMEDUS X

    ANDROMEDUS X

    Track moving objects while staying alert to potential incoming hazards
  • HEY RUBE!

    HEY RUBE!

    Rapidly look around a scene while challenging your visual memory
  • HAZARD HIGHWAY

    HAZARD HIGHWAY

    Make quick decisions as an object approaches at various speeds
