Ramapo High School students find out what its like to drive impaired
Police are giving Ramapo High School students an up close look at what it’s like to drive while impaired this homecoming season.
The school, the Spring Valley Police Department's community enhancement unit, and School Resource Officer Robert Navarro assisted the Ramapo High School's health classes with their DUI Awareness lessons.
Utilizing “Fatal Vision Goggles,” a pedal kart, and the Rockland County Sheriff's Office driving simulator, students were able to experience firsthand, the hazards of driving under the influence and distracted driving.
The goggles cause the wearer to display behaviors that are typical of individuals impaired by alcohol at various blood alcohol content levels.
The students performed simple activities or sobriety tests without the goggles, and then, with the goggles. Performing the activities twice lets participants experience their performance while unimpaired and then impaired.
