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