Students at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, under the direction of their professor, have created a video game that illustrates the impact of driving while intoxicated. Players of the game must attempt to get home and do their best to get into bed while the screen duplicates the effects of having a blood-alcohol content three times the legal limit. Penalties, fines and criminal consequences of driving under the influence are flashed on the screen.
Most students believe they can drive while intoxicated, and that all they must do is concentrate to compensate. The game attempts to show the true dangers of drunk driving.
