University of Houston Wellness, the Cougar Peer Educators and the UH chapter of University Mothers Against Drunk Driving are co-sponsoring a drunk-driving awareness event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the University Center.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience a mock sobriety test with UH Department of Public Safety by wearing beer goggles, which illustrate impaired coordination and judgment. The event also includes free food and prizes, obstacles course, stories about drunk-driving victims and information about blood alcohol concentration.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Harris County has the highest drunk driving rate of any county across the United States.
