Goggles Give Drivers Sensation They're Driving Drunk

I don't know if they still do this, but when I took drivers education back in high school, they had these things called 'simulators' you would sit in that were like a driving video game. It was extremely low tech. But my how the times have changed. Technology is now allowing kids to experience the sensation of driving drunk, while they're actually sober, in an effort to reduce drug and alcohol use. Here's the story from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
