POTTSBORO, TX ― Pottsboro police visited Pottsboro High School to educate students about the dangers of drunk driving Monday in efforts to prevent it.
Simulation goggles and golf carts were used to mimic drunk driving. Students from Pottsboro High School were able to get a feel for what it would be like to drive impaired.
Some students say they would now think twice before getting in a situation with drunk driving.
"Oh it’s real tough. It's a lot tougher than you think it would be driving with those goggles on. I'm sure it gives a good reenactment of what it would be like if you were drinking and driving," Pottsboro High School senior Drew Bates said.
This is the first time Pottsboro police has brought this project to high school, but police officials say they hope to continue this in the future.
