Mock DUI Accident Shows Soldiers the Dangers of Drunk Driving

Posted on Wednesday, October 29th, 2008 at 1:10 am    

A Colorado military base held  mock DUI accident designed to “scare” the troops located on the base into not drinking and driving. The exercise was designed to show everyone that drunk driving can kill.

The mock accident involved a car travelling at a high rate of speed with a drunk driver who then hits a different car filled with three troops. To stage the accident, the base brought in firefighters, police officers, the jaws of life, a flight for life helicopter, and an ambulance. The scene was complete with fake blood, screams, and even the “death” of one of the troops.

In addition to the “death,” the drunk driver of the other vehicle was given a sobriety test. The entire exercise was part of Red Ribbon Week, a national program designed to increase awareness of drunk driving and an attempt to put an end to the practice.
