The Drugged Driving Suit is an innovative piece of clothing that, when worn by a user, mimics the effects of driving while under the influence of drugs. This suit works similarly to the Drunk Driving Suit, but is designed specifically to mimic the effects of drugs rather than alcohol. Both suits are part of Ford's Driving Skills for Life program, which is designed to educate young drivers about the effects of driving under the influence.

The suit uses special weights and padding to reduce mobility in the arms and legs, while goggles blur the view and headphones introduce audio distractions. All of these affect the driver's coordination, reducing their reaction time while making it difficult for them to control their vehicle.

The Drugged Driving Suit is proving to be a great way to convince young people that driving when under the influence of drugs is always a bad idea, even when you may think that you feel just fine.
