The Richland County Health Department held a special game of mini-golf in Bellville to promote awareness for their "Drive Sober, or Get Pulled Over" campaign. The campaign takes aim at drivers who are intoxicated behind the wheel and hopes to make a positive change in the way people drive.

"We're trying to make a serious point and do it in a fun way," said Reed Richmond, health educator for the Richland County Health Department. "If you can't do something as easy as play putt-putt when you're impaired, how can you expect to do something as difficult as drive a car?"

Students strapped on a pair of goggles that simulated the effects of being impaired. Many students remarked how difficult it was to tell where their swings would hit due to not being able to see accurately, effectively showing them what it was like trying to function while under the influence.
