Students at New Horizons High School experience what it is like to drive impaired without actually being impaired.
The Moses Lake police department brought over a specially designed go-cart to simulate driving impaired.
On the go-cart there is a remote controlled sensor that the police officers use.
Moses Lake officer Kyle McCain said there is a low and a high speed and a normal and impaired mode.
He said in the normal mode the go-cart reacts when the driver turns the wheel.
Students also try and pass a field sobriety test while wearing goggles that make them feel as if they are under the influence.
Officer McCain said the officers run the students through standard tests like the nightstep walk and turn or tennis ball toss.
He said the goggles show students what they would be seeing if they were impaired.
