Counseling Services brings out the Booze Buggy and Goggles on March 14

LCC Counseling Services will host a responsible drinking event just before St. Patrick’s Day called “Don’t Press Your Luck” from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 14 in the Gannon Commons at the Downtown Campus.

Students will have a chance to drive the Fatal Vision Simulated Impaired Driving Experience vehicle, nicknamed “the booze buggy,” and attempt to pass mock field sobriety tests wearing the Fatal Vision Goggles or “booze goggles.” They can also win prizes, score giveaways and most importantly — learn responsible drinking tips.

LCC Police and Public Safety will be assisting with the booze buggy course, setting up cones and road signs to create the ultimate impaired driving simulation to teach students about the effects of alcohol on the cognitive, physiological and neurological functions of the brain and body.

Michigan alcohol-impaired driving fatalities increased 22 percent in 2017, the largest increase in the nation, jumping from 244 to 311, and DUIs cost approximately $10,000 per incident.
