Students Spread Drunk Driving Awareness with an Alcohol Fueled Video Game
Is it supposed to make you aware of driving while drunk, or train you to drive better while you’re drunk? Let’s hope it’s the former.
Students at the University of Calgary and Professor Jim Parker have created a drunk driving video game where the object of the game is to try to get home while being under the influence of alcohol at three times the legal limit.
“A lot of people believe they could drive drunk. It’s not that big a deal, you just have to pay attention,” Parker said in a recent article on Canada.com. “The game simulates the issues that drunks have in terms of perception.”
In the game, you start out in the trunk, stagger around to your door and do your best to get to your bed. The game also gives players direct information on fines, penalties and consequences if they’re cited for drunk driving.
They should pass out mandatory copies to all incoming freshman in college.
