Students Get A Lesson About The Influence Of Alcohol

The 5th grade students at Merchantville Elementary School had the opportunity to use the Fatal Vision® goggles, which simulate eyesight of a person under the influence of alcohol. Sgt. Frank Talarico, Merchantville’s LEAD Officer, incorporates this activity as part of the program. The Fatal Vision® Impairment Simulation Goggles are a hands-on awareness building tool that allows people to experience with a sober mind what it's like to be under the influence of alcohol.  Participants experience how alcohol impairs a person's balance, vision, reaction time, and judgment. Simple activities with the Fatal Vision® Goggles such as walking a line, one-leg stand, reaching out to grab a set of car keys, or tossing a ball become important aha moments as the particpant realizes how susceptible they are to potentially dangerous consequences of impairment.  It was a fun and enlightening experience for the students and teachers.
