Abilene, TX

The Texas Department of Transportation is bringing its interactive Impaired Driving Dodgeball Experience to McMurry University from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, August 31 in the Garrison Campus Center parking lot.

The fun game of impaired dodgeball illustrates how drinking impairs your reaction time. The students must dodge the   balls, but as the game goes on, virtual drinks are added to a person’s avatar and it impairs their movements to reveal how alcohol slows reaction times.

Students will be participating for a chance to win gift cards and branded merchandise from local partners.

Operating under the slogan Plan While You Can, this campaign urges younger motorists to plan ahead if they will be drinking alcohol so that they are not tempted to get behind the wheel and put their life – and the lives of others – at risk.
