YOUR BAC, IMPAIRMENT, AND RISK OF HAVING A CRASH INCREASES
WITH EACH ALCOHOLIC DRINK CONSUMED!
Nothing sobers you up
Nothing reduces your BAC
ONLY TIME CAN MAKE YOU SOBER!
THE TRUTH ABOUT DRINKING AND DRIVING
I only drink beer, so I can drive.
It doesn't matter what kind of alcohol you drink. Your driving is affected by the amount of alcohol you consume.
I only had a couple, so I can drive.
Even one alcoholic drink impairs your ability to drive.
Coffee, a cold shower, fresh air, or exercise will sober me up.
Only the passage of time gets you sober. Coffee, a cold shower, fresh air, or exercise have no effect on how fast the liver breaks down alcohol and passes it out of the system. Rates of "sobering up" vary.
