Health Conditions That Are Dangerous for Driving

Before you get behind the wheel of your vehicle, you should always be aware of your physical and/or health condition. Driving has become so complicated because as drivers; we need to be aware of other dangers that may cause us to make a quick decision and react even quicker. You need to be at your best before you get behind the wheel to drive. You shouldn’t drive if:
• You have vision or hearing issues. Make sure that your eyes and ears have been checked. Also remember to wear sunglasses on sunny days.
• If you’ve been drinking alcohol. Your judgment and reaction time could be affected with the smallest amount of liquor that is consumed.
• If you’re taking medications, whether prescribed by your doctor or over-the-counter, that makes your drowsy.
• If you’re under the influence of any illegal drug.
• When you’re tired.
• When you are upset because anger and depression can cause you to drive carelessly.
