The Hinds County Sheriff's Department in collaboration with Emergency Response Paramedics and local police and Fire Departments held a powerful program at Jim Hill High School on the dangers of drinking and driving and also texting and driving.
The Hinds County Sheriff’s Office and the other law enforcement agencies and first responders came to Jim HIll on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 10:00 am to put on the Fatal Vision Demonstration and a Drunk Driver vehicle accident reenactment.
Fatal Vision teaches high school students the dangers of drunk and distracted driving.
In the one-day program, supervised students wear alcohol impairment simulation goggles while driving an ATV through a course marked with traffic cones. Students see the impact of drunk driving when the course is finished, and they count the number of cones they hit.
Fatal Vision also includes a course centered on distracted driving, where students must text answers to simple questions while behind the wheel.
