Huntingdon HS students get virtual lesson in impaired, distracted driving

HUNTINGDON, Tenn. — Students at one West Tennessee high school got a lesson in safe driving through taking part in a virtual demonstration. Huntingdon High School students learned Monday about the dangers of drinking and driving along with texting and driving. The young drivers also had a chance to wear “beer goggles” that made them feel as if they were impaired. “The goal is to let the kids understand that this is real life and this is what can happen in real life,” said Lt. Mark Covington with the Brownsville Police Department. Covington teaches driving safety across West Tennessee with the help of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
