Lisa Hobbs photo Warren County High School teens received a crash course in impaired driving Thursday morning. Trace Adcock was one of the first students to try McMinnville Police Departments newest acquisition, a Drunk Busters Pedal Kart, while wearing fatal vision goggles to simulate intoxication.
McMinnville Police Department is continuing its effort to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving and targeting those just learning to drive. Lt. Mark Mara, with assistance from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, offered a Fatal Vision Session at Warren County High School on Thursday morning for students in driver’s education. “How many of you have ever gotten into a vehicle with a friend that you know is impaired and shouldn’t be driving?” asked Mara after having students close their eyes to increase honesty.
