    Know Your Limit: Signs That You or a Friend Should Not Get Behind the Wheel

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Having a fun night out with friends can become dangerous if you try to drive after you’ve had too much to drink. To avoid facing serious DUI charges, remember these signs of intoxication that indicate you or a friend may be incapable of driving.

    Inhibition

    Loss of inhibition is an early sign of intoxication. You may feel more friendly and talkative; you may buy drinks for others or become argumentative. No matter how it manifests, this loss of inhibition is a classic sign of intoxication. If you notice this behavior, you are probably intoxicated and should not drive.

    Coordination

    When you become intoxicated, your coordination will start to suffer. You may fumble with small movements like getting money out of your wallet or dialing a phone number, or you may notice that you’re spilling drinks or bumping into walls. Any decrease in coordination is a sure sign that you’re not able to drive. Driving requires sharp motor skills, and any loss of these skills will seriously endanger you and others.

    Judgment

    Difficulty making decisions is a sure sign of intoxication and inability to drive safely. If you engage in potentially dangerous behaviors without thought for consequences, you’re almost definitely under the influence of alcohol to a degree that will impair your ability to drive.

    Appearance

    There are certain visible physical signs of intoxication that are telling. For example, watery eyes and a flushed face are almost sure indicators of alcohol consumption. In fact, these are some of the signs that police officers watch for when they pull over drivers suspected of driving under the influence. Take a good look at yourself or your friend before getting behind the wheel.

    Everyone drinks too much sometimes, but you can do your part to keep tabs on yourself and your friends to prevent drunk driving. Even with your best efforts, though, you may still be pulled over by police and arrested on charges of DUI.
