Drunken driving simulator gives a sober lesson to kick off Minnesota crackdown


Howard Johnson on Thursday was given a field sobriety test by a Minnesota state trooper, ordered to walk a straight and narrow line with one foot in front of the other.

With his hand flailing to help him balance and feet repeatedly slipping off the line, Johnson failed miserably.

Johnson wasn’t intoxicated, but he was wearing “drunk-vision” goggles that simulate what it’s like to drive while impaired. He was among members of the media and the public who strapped on the fancy eyewear and drove pedal carts through a course lined with cones inside the Maplewood Mall to try their hand at sobriety tests like those performed by suspected drunks.
