Ever wonder why it's a dumb idea to drive or operate machinery after you’ve been drinking or tired?
Slip on a pair of Drunk Busters Impairment Goggles and you'll no longer wonder why. - Great for businesses and schools
For some people, impairment might result from as little as one drink of alcohol. Impairment can also result from combining alcohol with prescription medication, yet it would show a very low Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC). Using illegal drugs is also impairing, with no BAC level even present.
These unique goggles simulate effects of impairment, including reduced alertness, slowed reaction time, confusion, visual distortion, alteration of depth and distance perception, reduction of peripheral vision, poor judgment and decision making, double vision, and lack of muscular coordination.
Drunk Busters Impairment Goggles are being used in 61 different countries worldwide in Drink Driving Prevention and Awareness programs, Driver education classrooms, Safety management and Occupational Health and Workplace Safety programs, Boating, 4WD, snowmobile and hunting safety classes, underage drinking and drug awareness programs, alcohol and drug treatment programs.
P I Plus is the authorised Australian Importer & Distributor of this unique educational tool.

Our pesenters have many years of experience in presenting these sessions to all ages. Bec, our main presenter,is also a highly experience Ambulance Paramedic.
Presenting to schools, corporate and government clients she will educate and entertain the audience but still deliver the very important facts and information with the reality of impairment through drugs or alcohol.
For an effective program, participants should have the opportunity to perform a few tasks while “sober” and then repeat the same tasks in the same order while “impaired” wearing the goggles.
The more time spent with each participant, the more effective your program. You must convince them that impairment can lead to serious injuries or death for themselves, friends, family members, or innocent victims. Stress to participants that the goggles only simulate visual impairment, and that when one is actually impaired, there are other consequences as well. In a small classroom setting, you may have time for everybody to wear the goggles. With a bigger audience, use one or a small number of volunteers for demonstration purposes.
Some Suggested Activities
Walk The Line - Place a 3m (10-foot) line on the floor with masking or duct tape. Ask the participant to take nine steps, in a straight line, walking heel to toe with their hands at their sides, turn, and walk nine steps back, counting the steps out loud as they walk. The second test is the
One Legged Stand - With their hands at their sides, have them lift one foot 20cm (six inches) off the floor, pointing their toes straight out. Looking at the extended foot, have the participant count out loud “one thousand one, one thousand two, etc…” until they have held the foot out for 30 seconds. When sober, just like any driver, they should perform these tests perfectly. When wearing the goggles, like a drunk driver, they will fail both of these tests.
Catch the ball - Have the participant stand with one hand behind their back; throw five small balls one at a time that they need to catch with one hand without using any other parts of their body.
Pick it up - Throw car keys, coins, dice or any other small objects on the floor and tell them to pick the items up as quickly as possible. Have somebody else in the audience keep track of how many seconds it takes the participant to do this while sober and then the second time while impaired. For a variation, you can throw a selection of small coins as well as 50c and dollar coins on the floor, and then have the participant pick up a specific coin only when you command them to do so.
Steering wheel - Use a real steering wheel (ask a car wreckers yard to donate one) or a plastic steering wheel that you can buy at a toy store, or simply buy some plastic plates and pretend. Have the participants drive around the classroom on a simple course that you design using masking tape, traffic safety cones, desks, or chairs.
Use caution: we suggest you have others watch out for those with the goggles on while they complete the course – you don’t want somebody to get hurt!
Drive a Remote controlled car - Set up a simple course and use a remote controlled toy car. Keep track of the time it takes to drive the course sober vs. impaired.
Basketball drills - If you have access to a basketball hoop, have them dribble a basketball from “point A to point B”, and then take a shot from that location.
Other ideas - Find a specific telephone number in a phone book, call a friend on your mobile phone, unlock a lock, walk to a car in a parking lot, write a text message on a mobile phone, use a computer keyboard to type several sentences check the screen (time them and compare the number of errors), or ride as a passenger in a car & try to read traffic and street signs.
Driving course On a flat, paved parking lot with no obstructions, set up a course using traffic safety cones, ask a local golf course to donate a golf cart for the day, and have participants drive the course while sober and then impaired.
You MUST have a responsible adult ride on the golf cart with the participant. You can do the same thing with a driver’s education car. After they drive the course the second time while impaired, have a local police officer conduct a traffic stop, and put them through the Standardized US Field Sobriety Testing.
