Impaired Driving: The Sobering Facts

Impaired Driving

There is no question that impaired driving is a serious safety risk on our roads. Consuming any substance, whether it is alcohol, prescription meds or illicit drugs, impacts driving skills. It slows reaction times and your judgment, makes drivers more aggressive and reckless, and causes extreme drowsiness, all of which can lead to car accidents.
