College students learn the dangers of alcohol use

April 8, 2004

Albany -- The health dangers of alcohol use and drinking and driving were stressed to South Georgia college students as part of National Alcohol Screening Day.

Darton College sophomore Jamie Crane tries a pair of beer goggles. The goggles blur her vision, much like being intoxicated. Crane had trouble walking a straight line, giving her an idea how tough it would be to drive a car while drunk. Crane said "I couldn't even walk a straight line. We definitely need to keep drunk drivers off the road."

Safe Communities Coordinator Michele DeMott said " The rates of traffic crashes and fatalities nationwide are going up for young people ages 20 to 25. Focusing on these young people to get into their minds that it's not O.K. to drink and drive, not even one."

 Darton College students took surveys and were given information about alcohol use as part of National Alcohol Screening day.
