While the dangers of drunk driving are obvious, many people do not realize that driving hungover can also be very hazardous.
According to AAA East Central, those consuming alcohol this holiday season can wake up the next day with alcohol still in the blood due to the fact that it takes the body a long time to process alcohol.
Symptoms of a hangover that can be dangerous for drivers include fatigue, headaches, nausea, dizziness, shakiness, sensitivity to light, and inability to concentrate.
This New Years AAA recommends making responsible transportation arrangements ahead of time and planning for a reasonable amount of recovery time the next day before undertaking activities like driving. Those hosting parties may want to consider offering overnight accommodations to guests who have not planned to drink responsibly.
