Affect of alcohol highlighted in simulation

SHARE

St Kevin’s College students got a taste of triple vision, poor co-ordination and inability to judge distances yesterday – all caused by goggles that simulate the effects of being drunk.

Waitaki District Council Road Safety co-ordinator Elton Crane popped out to the school at lunch time yesterday and put the students through their paces with a Fatal Vision Goggles course.

The course was designed to cover targeting, balancing, manoeuvring, visual and motor skills and a combined activity as students attempted to walk in a straight line, do a simple maths calculation and throw a ball into a basket.

“It was a good experience and great to see so many students joining in and checking out the action,” he said.
