Driven+to+distraction

During Bonnie Bettis’ fourth-period HOPE class Wednesday, students took a sobriety test course in order to learn the effects of impairment or distractions on drivers.  Students drove a pedal-powered vehicles and attempted to weave through cones while texting or wearing drunk-simulation goggles. “It was easier to text and drive than I thought it would be,” freshman Ayden Lew said. “It was much harder to drive with the ‘drunk goggles’ on though.”
