Vail Christian High School is teaching its students road safety using none other than Mario Kart Wii.

Apparently, the class is called “distracted and drowsy driving project” and kids use the steering wheel peripheral whilst trying to send text messages etc. and smashing into walls and other motorists.

“The whole focus of Vail Christian High School’s traffic safety project is about distracted driving,” said Kim Greene of the Vail Valley Medical Center.

“With the way Alli is driving, rarely on the road and often crashing into computerized cows, the program seems to be driving home the point,” added Colorado 9 News.

We only needed David Prowse MBE we we were kids.
