Dangerous Dehydrated Driving

A new study has revealed that drivers who are particularly dehydrated may be just as dangerous on the roads as those who have been drinking alcohol.

Loughborough University released the figures claiming that drivers who drank a small amount of 25ml of water an hour were likely to make twice as many mistakes when behind the wheel as those who were properly hydrated – Which also means that they would make approximately the same amount of mistakes as a driver who was over the legal drink-drive limit.

Dehydration can cause a lack of concentration which will result in a decreased driving ability – Which puts both yourself and others around you at risk when you are on the roads. Make sure to stay well hydrated at all times, or run the risk of dangerous driving.

Safe driving from Britannia!
