Alcohol consumption is one of the leading causes of accidents in the world

Alcohol as I mentioned in previous blogs is one of the leading causes of auto accidents in the world. Driving under the influence of alcohol is very dangerous, very few people measure the true risk of driving while intoxicated. Many people think that drinking little does not affect them, the reality is that the rapidity of the effect of alcohol varies in each person.

Alcohol impairs the senses, reflexes and attention. Many auto accidents could be prevented by moderating alcohol consumption.

If you drink, do not drive, alcohol and the steering wheel are a very dangerous combination, it puts your life and the lives of your passengers (and pedestrians and other drivers) at risk, as well as the lives of other people who are passing by while driving near you while intoxicated.

It is preferable to request a taxi or a private transport service, to avoid risks.

In many people, alcohol causes an aggressive and impulsive behavior, which is risky when driving, just as the lack of attention causes drunk drivers not to keep the lane in which they drive, and change lanes without taking precautions. Likewise, it is more difficult to measure and calculate distances when driving, which can cause a collision with another vehicle.

Alcohol reduces the visual field, which increases the risk of accidents by complicating the sight of obstacles on the road as well as other drivers, and even more dangerous not being able to see smaller vehicles such as bicycles or motorcycles, as well as the signs that can Alter speed limits, dangerous curves or any other risk factors along the way. Stay safe and do not drink and drive.
