Sheriff Butch Reece and the Jones County Sheriff’s Office partnered with JCHS Sept. 19-20, to present a Simulated Impaired Driving and Texting while Driving class at the Jones County Ninth Grade Campus.
The simulation was part of the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program that all students must complete prior to receiving their driver’s license.
The students attempted to maneuver golf carts through a cone course while wearing impairment or “drunk” goggles.
When worn, the goggles distort the vision of the wearer, giving the students a temporary feeling of being impaired. The students also attempted the same cone course while texting and being distracted.
