Students at Darien High School were given the opportunity to experience a drunk driving simulation Tuesday morning.

As part of Alcohol Awareness Month, Darien police officers brought Drunk Buster goggles that allowed students to see how their depth perception and vision are significantly altered when under the influence of alcohol. Students then tried to drive a golf cart around a course at the high school without hitting any of the cones. Student who didn't have their driver's license or learner's permit attempted to successfully complete field sobriety tests. Many of the students said the tasks were more difficult to complete than they anticipated. The goggles, which had various degrees of blood alcohol content levels, were donated to the Darien police by the Darien Youth Council.
