South Carolina Uses Golf Carts to Teach Dangers of Drunk Driving

December 5, 2008

Charleston County has a new way to show South carolina students how dangerous drunken driving can be — a golf cart and so-called drunk goggles.

The goggles simulate what your vision would be like if you were driving drunk. Students are then asked to drive the golf cart through an obstacle course wearing the goggles.

The system was to be demonstrated at West Ashley High this week.

If the cart and goggles don’t convince students of the dangers of drunken driving, emergency medical services workers will share their stories.

They tell students what to expect should they be taken to the hospital in an ambulance. They also describe some of the injuries they have dealt with on the job.
