How alcohol affects driving?
Many of the functions that we depend on to drive safely are affected when we drink alcohol:
- the brain takes longer to receive messages from the eye
- processing information becomes more difficult
- Instructions to the body’s muscles are delayed resulting in slower reaction times.
- You can also experience blurred and double vision, which affects your ability to see things clearly while you are driving. And youâ€™re more likely to take potentially dangerous risks because you can act on urges you normally repress.
