One of the most dangerous combinations and a plague upon our
society! Alcohol and driving do not mix under any circumstances,
and this is evidenced by the thousands of lives that are carelessly
jeopardized and lost every year across our nation.
Alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream and immediately begins to
wreak havoc upon your body. Your senses are numbed and your
reaction time slows. You can no longer safely operate a motor
vehicle as your senses continue to become impaired and your reaction
time continues its downward spiral.
Alcohol will continue through your bloodstream and reach your brain,
and gross motor impairments will become evident. Inhibition of
thought processes, impairment of the senses and an overall feeling of
euphoria and self-confidence, excessive mood changes and emotional
responses, and the loss of coordination and balance will soon overtake
you. If you continue to consume alcohol at rates faster than your
body can metabolize it, loss of consciousness and even death can
follow. If these responses are delayed and begin to appear after
you have taken physical control of a motor vehicle, that motor vehicle
will evolve into a deadly weapon.
