Alcohol and driving

Did you know that every day, an average of 10.5 accidents are caused by drunk drivers? In Quebec, 110 people die every year because of alcohol-impaired driving.

Virtual reality Simulations

The presentation uses an innovative device called Fatal Vision goggles to make users feel as though they are under the influence of alcohol. These goggles reproduce the depressant effect of alcohol by modifying the wearer’s field of vision, simulating the impaired motor skills that result from excessive drinking.

Following the presentation, participants wearing the goggles are invited to test their ability to perform simple tasks like walking in a straight line, sitting on a chair or simply shaking someone’s hand.

The results can be sobering for both the participant and observers. People are often astonished to see how blood alcohol content affects basic motor skills.
