CHP Teams Up with UCSB to Fight Drunk Driving

California State University Santa Barbara welcomed the CHP on campus Thursday as part of an event helping students understand why driving under the influence is so dangerous.The student group “Life of the Party” organized the event and is all about promoting safe partying practices.”Our message is ‘Caring is Sharing a Cab,'” Life of the Party organizer Genie Cheng said. “We want students to be aware of their bodies and who they are and just be careful and safe out there.”The event offered students a chance to sit behind the wheel of a DUI simulator. The simulator allows the driver to experience normal, sober driving and then impaired driving.Students also had a bicycle obstacle course that showed students the dangers of BUI, biking under the influence.”Biking under the influence is just as dangerous as DUI,” CHP Officer Jeremy Wayland said. “When you’re driving on a bike all you have to protect you is a helmet, if you wear one. When under the influence, you can make a small judgement call that could potentially injure or kill somebody.”
