Thinking, reasoning, and muscle coordination are essential in operating a vehicle safely. However, these abilities are impaired when alcohol, certain medications or illegal drugs are in the body. Never drive while impaired as the consequences can be devastating for you and others. When buzzed or drunk, it is best to request an Uber, Lyft, or taxi. By doing so, you can help keep yourself and others on the road safe.
