SIDNE (Simulated Impaired DrivNExperience) from Fatal Vision is a battery-powered vehicle.  Alcohol and other drug impairment is simulated through a delayed response mode (affects steering, braking, and acceleration).  Safety features include 2 three-point safety belts, a design to prevent rollovers, a limited top speed (modes of 4mph or 8mph), and an instructor remote (limiting range, controlling modes of operation, and can be used to brake/stop the vehicle).Police with SIDNE cart

Fatal Reaction®

Fatal Reaction® "inhibits a person's ability to divide their attention among multiple activities demonstrating the effect of Divided Attention Failure."  This teaching aid impairs the hearing of participants by simulating intoxication and causing the participant to stagger and muddle words.
