Driving Hungover Can Be As Bad As Driving Drunk

Here is an interesting little study as we head into the Holiday party season. Science has shown that driving with a hangover can be just as dangerous as driving drunk even after the alcohol is completely out of your system.

The study was done in a University in England  on a group of  participants in a driving simulator for 20 minutes the day after heavy drinking  and found their reaction time was slower and their course more erratic.

The conclusion is that when we drink to excess and have a “Designated driver” that is good but if you are really hungover you might want to limit your driving on the following day as well.

A different Dutch study showed similar results and they noted a hangover could greatly increase lapses in attention along with the other before mentioned difficulties.

So stay safe and keep your insurance rates down.
