The Nevada Highway Patrol and Sudden Impact Auto Body teamed up for an event to educate drivers about the dangerous effects of drinking and driving. The event took place at the Police Position Raceway in Las Vegas, NV, on March 17, 2014.
Locals Angelique Gorges and Crystal Thurman volunteered to serve as crash test dummies as they race during the special event. The women drove intermittently as they consume alcohol between the seven- to ten-minute races.
Then, the Nevada Highway Patrol used a breathalyzer device to track blood alcohol content and lap times were measured electronically with a high-tech timing and scoring system to show a direct correlation. The experiment was held on a private, closed course, separate from the public. Volunteers from Sudden Impact Auto Body were there to create awareness by demonstrating a vehicle after a severe collision. The vehicle serves as a powerful visual aid of the dangers caused by alcohol-impaired driving.
