New type of driver’s ed

Students take to course to experience being behind the wheel while impaired

Posted: Saturday, October 20, 2018 12:00 am

Seconds later, the car’s lights blinked from “sober” to “impaired” and suddenly Essence was spinning in circles, veering far off the expected path as she frantically tried to get her vehicle back under control.
