Just Say No! Ford’s Special Suit Shows The Dangers Of Doing Drugs And Driving

As the Arctic Monkeys might have sung, why’d you only drive me when you’re high…?

It’s reckoned that anyone driving while under the influence of drugs is up to 30 times more likely to have a serious crash. And it’s a growing problem.

Sobering stuff.

To try to counter that worrying statistic, Ford has created a special suit that highlights the dangers of being behind the wheel if you’re out of your head.

The clever gizmo simulates the effects of illegal substances such as cannabis, cocaine, heroin and MDMA, focusing on slower reaction times, distorted vision, hand tremors and poor co-ordination.

Talking of co-ordination…

The suit forms part of Ford’s Driving Skills For Life training programme, which is offered free to youngsters. Great idea!

Want to know more? There’s a video about it that makes for compelling viewing – even if the outfits look like something out of Doctor Who…

Quite frankly, it’s a must-watch, and you can check it out below:
