A sober view of alcohol - Fatal Vision Beer Goggles

A sober view of alcohol

Fatal Vision Beer Goggles are the latest new innovative teaching resource that can help to bring a sober view of alcohol into the classroom.

The Goggles provide the chance for students to experience how alcohol can impair a person’s balance, vision, reaction time and judgement.

Two sets of Goggles are available to purchase from the ADF online shop to simulate a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.07 – 0.10 and 0.17 – 0.20.

BAC refers to the amount of alcohol present in the bloodstream. A BAC of 0.05% (point 0 five) means that there is 0.05 grams of alcohol in every 100 milliliters of blood.

In Australia, the legal maximum BAC is 0.05% for licensed drivers in private vehicles. In most Australian states and territories, it is illegal to drive with a BAC greater than 0.05%, regardless of age or experience.

However, judgment and performance may be affected at blood alcohol concentrations lower than 0.05%. Research shows that at a BAC of 0.05%, the risk of crashing is twice as high as when no alcohol is consumed. Read more on BAC from DrugInfo.
