Don't Drink and Drive
#Can't Replay Ina Real Life
Safe driving requires that drivers are alert, possess situational awareness, hazard perception and quick reaction times. In sharp contrast, alcohol consumption degrades skills required to drive safely. Studies have shown that alcohol consumption results in measurable decrements in driver performance such as reduced situational awareness, reduced peripheral vision, poor recovery from glares, slower reaction times, poor performance in complex visual tracking and reduced performance with respect to dividing attention over different tasks (Moskowitz & Fiorentino 2000). The consumption of larger quantities of alcohol also has the ability to impair judgment (Canadian Public Health Association 2010) and can lead individuals to take risks that they would not take if they were sober such as engaging in reckless behaviour that could lead to injury, or driving under the influence (Zeigler et al. 2005).
