3-D(Drunk and Drugged Driving) Simulator
The 3-D (Drunk & Drugged Driving) Simulator are modified golf carts that are driven through a road course set up with traffic cones, by an operator wearing Fatal Vision goggles. This simulates operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This program is typically presented at high schools. To participate in the program, students must have a valid driver's license and a signed permission form from a parent or guardian if under the age of 18.

Fatal Vision Goggles
A specially designed and manufactured pair of goggles that simulate visual impairment caused by drugs or alcohol. A wearer's normal perceptions are distorted by the goggles, similar to the effects of intoxication. The goggles are intended to convince both the wearer and those observing that alcohol impairment makes activities with known risks, such as driving vehicles, very dangerous and life-threatening.
