Drunken driver in traffic
Alcohol impairs a driver’s ability to handle situations that require speed and accuracy. Reaction times are longer, more errors are made in evaluating situations and the judgement is impaired. The risk of traffic accidents grows.
Alcohol is eliminated from the body by the liver at a rate of one gram of pure alcohol per hour per ten kilograms of body weight. This is a steady process and cannot be speeded up by, for example, having a sauna or drinking coffee.
