We all know that being drunk and driving is a serious problem that can indiscriminately end young lives – whether that of the driver or the person they happen to hit. That is why it so important to raise awareness of the problem from a young age, so that our kids grow up knowing the dangers that come with being drunk and driving.
That’s where Elite Toy Store and Berg ride-on pedal cars come in. We facilitated the creation of a unique kids driving course, where children don a specialized pair of goggles that simulate the effects of alcohol intoxication. They then tried to make their way around the course, inevitably with much difficulty.
This is a unique approach to the task of raising awareness of drunk driving, but it is one that is being praised by all who have come across. The kids actually got to have fun in their Berg ride-on pedal cars, and the fact that being drunk and driving is extremely dangerous and wrong becomes ingrained in them naturally during the experience, as opposed to being forced upon them as information like this usually is.
Berg ride-on pedal cars were the ideal choice too. Besides the fact that they are readily available here at Elite Toy Store, they offer much more than just any old go-kart. Take our BERG Toys X-plorer XT Pedal Go Kart for example. It has a swing axle and genuine off-road tires that make the X-plorer XT ideal for rugged terrain, and comes complete with freewheel, double ball bearings and your own number plates.
The swing axle allows for stabilization on all terrain, while freewheel mode allows the pedals to remain static whilst the go-kart still moves – it automatically switches over to reverse when needed. On top of all that, most Berg ride-on pedal cars come with a selection of the following exciting features: a silver roll bar that makes the go-kart sturdier and safer, a comfortable sport seat and a front spoiler for aerodynamic purposes.
Berg ride-on pedal cars have been manufactured by Berg for over 40 years, and we highly endorse them for their safety, reliability and of course because they are so much fun. Without them our attempt to raise awareness of the dangers of being drunk and driving would not have been the same. Their maneuverability was suited perfectly to the kids driving course, as was their considerable size and sturdiness, simulating the effects of a real vehicle. After all, our Berg ride-on pedal cars are certified as being “commercial grade,” so you know that they are built to last.
Our DWI awareness program went off without hitch thanks to Berg and of course the local community, who were only too happy to help out and get involved. Designed by the Public Safety Department, the specialized kids driving course and equipment impressed everyone, especially the kids, who we hope took away some valuable life lessons from the experience. Remember, never ever drink and drive.
