Georgia Perimeter College student Jarred Todd attempts to maneuver a virtual road course on a program designed to simulate driving under the influence of alcohol. The Arrive Alive Tour visited Georgia Perimeter College’s Newton Campus on Wednesday, bringing the simulator for students to demonstrate the dangers of distracted and intoxicated driving. By wearing goggles that display an electronically simulated roadway, students were able to mimic driving under the influence, as well as texting while driving. Arrive Alive visits schools throughout the country to inform students about the consequences — both immediate and legal — of distracted and drunk driving. (Staff Photo: Ryan McKenzie)
