As an alcohol server or manager, it is extremely important that you help prevent your customers from driving while intoxicated. The reason is that alcohol can hinder a person’s driving abilities in the following ways.
Judgment: Alcohol hinders the ability to make good decisions and may lead to overconfidence or risk-taking behavior.
Concentration: Alcohol affects the ability to concentrate or focus, leading to reduced vigilance, poor multitasking abilities, and even drowsiness.
Coordination: Alcohol reduces hand-eye and foot-eye coordination.
Reaction Time: Alcohol slows one’s reflexes, which can increase the time it takes to respond to driving situations.
Tracking: Alcohol affects the ability to judge one’s own position on the road as well as the location of road signs or other vehicles.
Vision: Alcohol slows eye movement and alters visual perception, which may result in blurred vision and impaired night vision or color perception.
