Last month this Florida-based personal injury blog published a post on the effects that drinking has on the human body. Alcohol can cause a variety of changes in the body in a relatively short amount of time, from impacting the way that a person judges distance and time, to decreasing their inhibitions and making them more likely to take risks. When put together, the effects of alcohol on the human body make driving a dangerous activity to do when drunk.

What does drinking alcohol do to the human body?

Individuals in Florida who have legally consumed alcoholic beverages may understand the effects that the substance has on the human body. Alcohol can change individuals' perceptions and can influence how they make decisions. It should come as no surprise to Florida residents, then, that alcohol can have a major effect on how safely and effectively individuals can drive their cars when they are under the influence.
