Look what happens to your driving skills if you drink alcohol!
Your driving is affected in this way:
If you go out at 9 pm – 4 am and drink the following, and drive home at 4 am, this is what it means.
Drank 3 Cocktails + 4 Double Vodka’s
Total Units = 15.5units. = 0.31g in blood.
Minus 7 hours @ .015g = 0.105g in blood
Total Blood alcohol level =0.205 g.
You will still be nearly 4 times over the legal limit!
80 times chance of accident compared if you were sober!
You will suffer from:
∙ Impairment of peripheral vision.
∙ Blurred vision.
∙ Serious loss of judgment.
∙ Serious loss of co-ordination.
You are only able to deal with one thing at a time when you have been drinking.
(When driving you have to be able to deal with 4 or 5 things at a time to drive safely.)
At 7am, when you wake up, you think you have a bad hangover/babelaas.
You are however still drunk, and when you drive to work your BAL will still be 0.150g. (3 x over – 25 times chance of having a crash)
At lunchtime, when you go out at 1pm, your BAL will be .06g, i.e. still “Over the Legal Limit!” (4+ times chance of having a crash)
At 4pm that afternoon your BAL will be.015g. If you knocked a pedestrian over, you could still be charged with “Drunken Driving” or the correct legal term of “Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.”
At 5pm the alcohol will be out of your system completely, and this is the safest way to drive.
