Know Your Limits is an alcohol education kit for use in public libraries in NSW. The aim of the kit is to provide community members with information and resources to improve their knowledge and awareness of the harms and risks associated with alcohol and the dangers of impaired driving by:
- increasing clients’ knowledge of how motor skills, hand eye co-ordination and judgement are impaired by alcohol
- providing clients with engaging and interactive activities to increase sustainable learning regarding alcohol.
The Know Your Limits kit is available for loan to NSW public libraries for use in public programs, outreach activities, and library events. The kit can be used with small or large groups.

The Know Your Limit beer goggle kit contains:
- one pair of White Label Fatal Vision goggles: simulates a low level of impairment, an estimated BAC of less than .06. The effect of the White Label goggle will be subtle, as in the beginning stages of low impairment.
- one pair of Red Label Fatal Vision goggles: simulates a moderate to high level of impairment, an estimated BAC of .12 to .15+. Impairment is more apparent and easily recognised
- Stress balls
- Sanitizing wipes
- Carry bag
The pack contains 2 pairs of Fatal Vision goggles, each with a different BAC level. These levels simulate the impairment associated with a level of Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC). The goggles provide the chance to experience how alcohol impairs a person's balance, vision, reaction time, and judgement.
