TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Hayden High School students learned first-hand the effect of driving while impaired.
Students took part in an obstacle course -- driving through on a golf cart while wearing goggles that imitated the feeling of being drunk.
Students say the course was tougher than they expected, but is a good learning tool.
"There were two different sets of cones through the glasses," said Hayden junior Thomas Bagley. "I couldn't tell which ones were the real ones, it was so deceptive. There was no way of doing it well."
"It's really scary and I think it's going to show people there's a lot more to this than we thought," said Hayden junior Nicole Wooten. "I mean, everyone knows you're not supposed to drink and drive but I think when they put you in this position, it makes you learn a lot better."
Some students were given an added challenge of trying to text and drive while wearing the goggles.
