RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Students at Ramapo High School learned what can happen when they drive drunk or under the influence of drugs during an educational event presented by the Ramapo police.

Organized by the department's school resource officers and assisted by the patrol division and the traffic safety unit, the event demonstrated to students what happens when an accident occurs and what it takes for the victims to be removed from the vehicles and treated.

Helping during the demonstrations included were from the Hillcrest Fire Department, Monsey Fire Department, Rockland Paramedic Services and the Spring Hill Ambulance Corps.

Officers also conducted field sobriety test on the operator while he was wearing “fatal vision goggles.” These goggles simulate impaired motor coordination.

The department held the event in an effort to remind students of the dangers of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence or alcohol or any other substance.

Hi-Tech Auto for provided the vehicles for the demonstration.
