Students experience drinking, driving dangers

Students in Livingston County got a lesson on Wednesday about the dangers of drinking and driving.

About 100 freshmen took turns driving a golf cart while wearing "drunk goggles" that showed them what it’s like to get behind the wheel while intoxicated.

It’s a feeling Livingston County Sheriff Bobby Davidson wanted these kids to experience through the simulation, so they can understand the dangers without being in danger.

"The thing about this program is when you put the goggles on, it shows what level of alcohol you have intake, and it affects your driving, it affects your reaction time," says Sheriff Davidson.

With graduation just weeks away, Davidson says the lesson comes at a perfect time.
