    Newton - Teachers, law enforcement officers, parents and community leaders, including N.J. Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose and Sussex County Freeholder Steve Oroho faced the challenge of Driving Under the Influence tests administered by Sgt. Wendy Cooney of the N.J. state police. The tests were performed Sept. 30 as part of the “Fatal Vision Goggles Training and Legislative Breakfast” sponsored by the Newton-baed Center for Prevention and Counseling. Fatal Vision Goggles are used in schools and various community settings to teach people about the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. The goggles simulate the visual impairment and disorientation caused by alcohol and other drug use.
