Riverhead High School students better understood the dangers of drinking and driving under the influence when Drunk Buggies, a Suffolk County Sheriff’s program, was presented at the school.  

Through the hands-on program, students attempted to navigate a drivable “buggy” through an obstacle course while wearing goggles that simulated intoxication. They also tried to walk through the course wearing the goggles.

The program was led by Deputy Sheriff Thomas Indence, who also spoke to the students about good decision-making and the risks associated with alcohol.
