3D Driving Awareness

15 June 2017

Year 12 recently took part in a driving awareness event to help them understand the dangers of drink driving.

There were four sessions culminating in an actual driving exercise in ‘mini’ cars. The sessions were:

  • Police talk
  • Car safety talk with Kwik Fit
  • Road Safety truck
  • Mini car test

The exercise involved driving a mini car around a circuit of strategically placed obstacles first normally and then wearing ‘drunk goggles’ which impede the driver’s vision to simulate that of a drunk driver. Students found this experience both exciting and scary but it made them aware of the dangers of drinking and driving or even being a passenger in a vehicle when the driver is under the influence of alcohol.
