PostSubject: What Are Driving Impairments?   Sat Jan 14, 2017 6:17 pm

Driving impairments are any conditions or actions that prevent a driver from operating a vehicle in a safe and reasonable way. They include such things as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, obstructed views and various conditions related to distracted driving. Generally, there are laws against actions and conditions that could lead to impaired driving conditions. As a stipulation to being licensed to drive, motorists must know and agree to abide by the laws in their area before operating a motor vehicle.

One of the most common causes of driving impairments is alcohol use. When using alcohol, reaction times, balance, and vision can all become inhibited, leading to problems while driving. While everyone may react to alcohol a little differently, most jurisdictions put a limit on the amount of alcohol that can be in someone's blood while operating a motor vehicle. Generally, the blood alcohol percentage can be no more than .08 to 1 in most jurisdictions, which is expressed in some countries as 80 to 100 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood.
