Traffic cones don’t have a chance when it comes to impaired driving PDF Print E-mail

During the Liberal Noon Lions Club meeting Monday members got a chance to try out one of National Carriers’ and National Beef’s new safety programs. National Carriers and National Beef have long been working to find new ways to help the community and have again invested in a new Driving While Impaired program. Ed Kentner from National Carriers and Dean Aragon from National Beef were there to show off this new program. Driving While Impaired includes drinking and driving, texting while driving, and even not wearing seat belts. National has now purchased a four seat golf cart and “Beer Goggles” for this new program, which the Liberal Noon Lions Club got the maiden voyage. Driving though cones in this new cart with these goggles gives you the effect of a .08 blood alcohol impairment. Lyons members had a great time trying not to hit cones throughout the course.  National Carriers’ Ed Kentner said that plans are in place to take this to many more events and locations. The next cone massacre is scheduled for the Liberal High School driver’s education class later this week. L&T photo/Chris Linenbroker
