The Dover Air Force Base (DAFB) Wing Safety Office and the Office of Highway Safety are hosting several interactive DUI activities on base during Safety Down Day to show airmen that drinking and driving just don’t mix.
Safety Down Day activities will have a football theme to support the NFL enforcement that is currently underway in Delaware. Airmen will get to try their skills at throwing a football at a target and riding a tricycle while wearing DUI Fatal Vision goggles, which use special lens technology that allows the wearer to experience a realistic simulation of impairment. They will also have the opportunity to drive a go-cart type vehicle, which simulates the effects of distraction and impairment from alcohol and other drugs on a motorist’s driving skills. Plus, Delaware State Police will showcase what happens to when drivers don’t buckle up. Those who drink and drive are also less likely to buckle up.
