Students get behind the wheel of a 'drunk Bug'

NORWICH – Norwich High School students took turns Friday driving under the effects of alcohol, not through consumption, but with a specially modified car that simulates drinking and driving.

More than 150 students got behind the wheel the Safety Bug, a yellow, 2003, Volkswagen Bug. The car’s visit was provided by Pennsylvania Stop DUI Program through a $1,500 grant secured by Senator Thomas Libous Office (R-Binghamton) called YES! Safe Choices for Kids.



Norwich School Social Worker Kelly Collosi watched on as students took turns navigating the orange cones of the driving course along side a Stop DUI driving instructor.

“It’s important students understand the effects of drinking and driving. This gives them a hands-on experience they can truly understand by the time they’ve finished the course,” she said.
