Police work with volunteers to demonstrate how alcohol consumption impairs motor skills.
Police want you to avoid getting behind the wheel this Halloween weekend if you've been drinking. Instead you can catch a free cab ride home.
"What I want you to do is take a deep breath and blow into the tube," says Jonathan Moore, a volunteer with the Washington Regional Alcohol program.
Moore has downed 10 beers in just four hours. His blood alcohol level is .15. That's way above the legal limit of most states which is .08.
Moore was recruited by D.C. Park Police and the Washington Regional Alcohol Program as part of Checkpoint Strikeforce. It's a demonstration to show how alcohol can affect a driver's motor skills.
Officers gave Moore a field sobriety test, which he failed.
"I thought it would be a little easier than it was, it is not alright to be behind the wheel at a level that you think you would be able to," he says.
To keep drunk drivers off the road this Halloween weekend, WRAP will offer SoberRide. It's a free cab service which runs from 10 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday.
"Fifty-eight percent of all traffic fatalities in the U.S. are caused by drunk drivers through the Halloween period," says the group's president, Kurt Erickson.
More than 50,000 drivers have utilized SoberRide over the last 17 years.
