Ms. Hasse's high school health class experienced a whole new "vision" on their classroom work as they experienced lessons from wearing Fatal Vision Goggles. The experience was offered by a local Verona traffic safety company, Innocorp, as a great lesson on how alcohol will impair your vision (this exercise did not touch on how it also affects brain activity for decision making and other bodily functions). The goggles simulate a .17-.20 blood alcohol level, which is the most common level that drunk drivers have upon being pulled over.

Parents signed a form to allow students to take part in the series of tests with and without the goggles. The class was split up into 3 sections: the pedal car course, which is an actual emergency vehicle operations course that law enforcement have to follow in training as well; the walking mat activity; and the walking the line" activity while VAHS Police Officer Liaison Matt Morris shared what law enforcement will desire if someone is pulled over for drinking suspicions.

Lastly, the students then recorded their thoughts on the testing, what they learned, and how they view drunk driving after they completed the test. Fatal Vision Goggles
