Omega -- Children and teens in Omega got a first hand look at the dangers of drunk driving.

"Fatal Vision" was one exhibit at Omega's Annual Kid Safety Expo. Teens were able to put on special glasses that impaired their vision to simulate being drunk. Every cone drivers hit represented a person killed in an accident.

"We try to tell people that the cones are people and if they hit a cone that fines you may have just injured someone but if you run over one I try to tell them you just killed someone," says a Tift County deputy directing the exhibit.

This is the second year of the Kid's Safety Expo sponsored by the Tift County Sheriff's Department.
