Students at Lake Nona High School were recently given the chance to see
and feel what it’s like to drive while drunk. In a
“DUI experience” program organized by Orlando and University of Central Florida police, students
got to drive modified go-karts with delayed responses and brakes that
simulate driving while intoxicated.
The students were instructed to complete two laps around an obstacle course
in the school parking lot – the first lap without delayed controls
and the second lap with them. Students were driving all over the place
as they quickly realized how difficult it was to control their vehicles.
The students were also given an opportunity to try on “drunk goggles”
that blur vision and make it difficult to walk in a straight line.
The program was designed to send an important message to students just
days before prom: don’t drink and drive. It is a message that was
received by the students loud and clear.
Drunk driving injures and kills thousands of people every year. In fact,
a person is injured in a
drunk driving crash every two minutes. With public transportation and ride-sharing services
like Uber and Lyft, there is no excuse for people to get behind the wheel
drunk. When drivers choose to disobey the law and someone gets hurt or
is killed because of it, that person should be held responsible for the
damage they have caused.
If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident, or you have suffered
the untimely loss of a loved one, you have the legal right to pursue damages
from the negligent driver who caused the accident. Backed by more than
22 years of legal experience, Todd Miner Law helps victims and families
of drunk driving accidents obtain justice in the form of financial compensation.
Because we believe in providing access to justice to everyone regardless
