Thinking, reasoning, and muscle coordination are essential in operating a vehicle safely. However, these abilities are impaired when alcohol, certain medications, or illegal drugs are consumed. Never drive while impaired, as the consequences can be devastating for you and others. When buzzed or drunk, requesting an Uber, Lyft, or a taxi is best.
