Peel Regional Police in southern Ontario have a new way to get people to realize exactly how dangerous drunk driving is. They call it the impairment suit.

The police force let reporters try it out as part of its RIDE program — best known for random roadside stops — which ultimately aims to keep drunk drivers off the road.
