BEER goggles which give people the impression of feeling drunk were given out in a bid to prevent drink-driving.
Hertfordshire County Council's road safety unit teamed up with Pubwatch to warn people that even one drink is too many when it comes to driving.
Shoppers at the Westgate Centre in Stevenage were given the goggles which distort vision and replicate the disorientating effects of alcohol.
County councillor Stuart Pile, executive member for highways, transport and rural affairs said: "Drink-driving tends to go up during the summer months so we want to make people aware how different their judgment is when they have been drinking alcohol.
You may also want to watch:
"Some people think they can calculate their own alcohol limits and that it's okay to have a couple of drinks if you're driving.
"But the fact is that if you're driving then even one drink is too much. So many things determine how alcohol affects you. One drink may not make you feel drunk but it will affect your judgment and reaction times. The only safe option is not to drink and drive at all.
