Effects of Alcohol on Drivers

The dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol are not a recent discovery. Since the 1970s, activist groups and government organizations have been working together to educate the public about drunk driving and penalize those who commit this defense. Unfortunately, while the rates of drunk driving have decreased nationwide in recent years, driving while intoxicated remains a common problem.

If you have been injured by an intoxicated driver, you should not have to live with painful consequences because of another person’s mistakes. The San Antonio drunk driving injury lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers will fight to win compensation for your medical bills, missed work, and other losses. Call us today at (210) 999-9999.

Recognizing the Dangers of Drunk Driving

Virtually everyone knows that driving while intoxicated is a hazardous decision, but not everyone knows why this is. The dangers of driving while drunk stem from the effects that alcohol has on a person’s mind and body. These effects include:

  • Reduced inhibitions, which increase risky behaviors like speeding or breaking the law
  • Delayed response to changes in the environment, such as a pedestrian walking into the street
  • Impaired vision, including the ability to judge distances between objects
  • Impaired hand-eye coordination, which can affect steering and other motor skills
  • Reduced ability to perform two or more tasks at once, such as talking while steering

There is no excuse for taking such needless risks with other people’s lives. That is why our San Antonio intoxicated driving injury attorneys are fully committed to helping accident victims seek justice.
