Chilliwack RCMP want you to see what it's like driving under the influence

Jul 24 2019, 3:48 pm

The Chilliwack RCMP is inviting people to a driving course to experience the effects of impaired driving.

How they’ll be doing it?

With fatal vision goggles, a go-cart track, and the challenge of trying to navigate a pedal cart.

It’s part of the RCMP’s safe driving education event, hosted by the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD). People of all ages are invited, even those that don’t have a license and are under the legal drinking age.

Participants will use fatal vision goggles, which replicate the impairment that comes from different blood alcohol concentrations (BACs). It’s a safe way for users to see how their vision, balance, reaction time, and judgement is skewered while under the influence.

The event will take place on Wednesday, July 31 from 11 am to 2:30 pm at the Cultus Lake Go-cart track.

Participation is free of charge.
