The Imperial Beach Sheriff’s Station is promoting a safe driving event for teens that will take place this Saturday on the campus of Mar Vista High School from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

As part of the event, teens will be encouraged to navigate a driving course using a golf cart while sending text messages or wearing “beer goggles,” a device that simulates nighttime driving while impaired. Attendees will also get to wear the goggles while attempting to pass a series of field sobriety tests in a series of activities deputies hope will illustrate the dangers of distracted or drunk driving.

Deputies will also roll out the mangled remains of an SUV that was involved in a fatal DUI crash for display, and encourage beginning drivers to enroll in the Start Smart program for the newly licensed.
