See a simulation of how alcohol impairs your coordination by @JillCiminillo

This is a video taken of Chicago-based car reviewer Jill Ciminillo of Auto Matters attempting to perform the “walk and turn test” while wearing an alcohol impairment simulation suit.

The suit was designed by Ford Motor Corporation to show how alcohol impairs your motor skills and coordination. Ford has been taking the suit to high schools across the country to demonstrate to teens how alcohol impacts their ability to drive safely.

In the video, Jill wears goggles which blurs her vision, headphones which impairs her hearing to and wears unbalanced body weights which make her wobbly and uncoordinated.

You can try it yourself by going to the Ford Motors Display at the Chicago Auto Show.
