ON THE ROADS
About 2/3 of American adults drink alcoholic beverages at least occasionally. Is that a problem? Not unless you combine drinking alcohol with getting behind the wheel of an automobile.
Obvious effects include slowed reaction time, diminished coordination, slurred speech and overconfident behavior, a deadly recipe when considering the task of driving. You've probably heard that .08% to .10% blood alcohol concentration - BAC - or more is legal evidence of driving while intoxicated. However, you might not know that you can be convicted of alcohol-impaired driving at a lower BAC if there are other indications that your driving is impaired. This is true in all U.S. states.
