What is it?
Fatal Vision Goggles are educational tools used to visually demonstrate various levels of impairments and the dangers of impaired driving.  The Goggles distort vision and cause the wearer to behave similarly to one impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Demonstrations of the Goggles includes participants wearing the Goggles and participating in activities such as attempting to walk a straight line between obstacles, participating in a ring toss game, attempting to throw a bean bag into a cone, as well as other various activities aimed at demonstrating the difficulty of performing basic tasks while wearing the goggles.
 
Who’s it for?
The Goggles are available for demonstration at schools attended by students in grades eight and up, and for various safety events.
 
How do I request it for my event?
 
There is no charge associated with our programs; however, we do have a few limitations. Below is some general information for those interested in scheduling a demonstration:
Requirements/Guidelines
·         There must be a guaranteed audience of at least 50 people for each demonstration.  (Exceptions to this may be made for smaller groups in the immediate Jackson area or demonstrations during the less busy summer or winter months.)
·         The Goggles are recommended for students who are at least 14 years of age.
·         It takes approximately 2-3 minutes for each participant to complete their activities with the Goggles.  Total time necessary for demonstration will depend on how many participants are present at the event.
·         Demonstrations can be done outdoors or indoors; however, if the event is scheduled for an outdoor location, it will be cancelled and/or rescheduled due to rain if no alternate indoor location is available.
·         It is recommended that Fatal Vision Goggles demonstrations be scheduled at least one month in advance; however, certain times of the year are extremely popular and available dates can go quickly.  So, the earlier you call, the better.
