• Alcohol can impair one’s ability to drive.
  • This is referred to as alcohol-impaired driving and it occurs when there is enough alcohol in a person’s system to cause their driving skills to be impaired by alcohol.  
  • A person’s driving ability may become impaired after just one or two drinks.
  • Alcohol affects a person’s abilities in several ways:
    • It reduces the function of the brain.
    • It impairs thinking.
    • It impairs vision.
    • It slows reaction times.
    • It reduces concentration, reasoning, and coordination.
  • These are all abilities that are essential to operating a vehicle.
  • As a result, an impaired driver may:
    • Have a reduced ability to judge distances or estimate the velocity of moving objects.
    • Be more likely to take greater risks.
    • Have a distorted view of their own personal capabilities and find themselves in driving situations they are unable to control.
    • Have a more narrowed field of vision, experiencing tunnel vision.
    • Scan the driving environment less often, and may fixate on one object.
    • Have a reduced ability to do more than one thing at a time.
  • This makes alcohol-impaired driving dangerous and deadly.
