Tate talks about crash that killed 17-year-old girl
Boyd Christian School held a Fatal Vision Session to educate its students about the dangers of driving while intoxicated and distracted driving. Adding fun to education, students were allowed to wear fatal vision goggles which give the same visual impairment as being legally intoxicated and asked to perform tasks. Tyler Beaty tries to perform a sobriety test under the direction of Police Lt. Mark Mara.
McMinnville Police Department offered a Fatal Vision Session at Boyd Christian School on Wednesday morning.“We spoke to about 70 students,” said McMinnville Police Department Lt. Mark Mara. “We are not only teaching students the dangers of driving impaired, we are teaching them how to recognize that someone is impaired so they won’t get into the vehicle with them. We also want to stress to them that distracted driving can be just as dangerous.
