KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — The “Save a Life Tour,” which uses simulators to show the consequences of driving while intoxicated, came to Rhine Ordnance Barracks in Kaiserslautern, Germany, on Wednesday.

Servicemembers tested their skills on a drinking-and-driving simulator that reflected varying degrees of intoxication. They also steered radio-controlled cars while wearing goggles that simulated intoxication, or tried walking while wearing the goggles.

More sessions are planned Thursday and Friday, at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. both days.

The event counts toward the soldiers’ annual Army Substance Abuse and Prevention training.
