Driving in a hangover state does not differ much from driving in a state of intoxication: there is increased drowsiness, slower reaction speed, etc. The results of a study conducted by Ford indicate that about 40% of Russian drivers were driving a vehicle with a hangover.
At the same time, 13% of respondents do this solely after the holidays, 60% stated that they never control the machine after drinking alcohol on the eve, but only 2% refused this because of an accident.
According to research by Brandwatch, based on the monitoring of social networks, the most hangover day of the week is Sunday, and the time when it is felt especially sharply 11 hours of the morning. At the same time, 2017 was recognized as the "hangover" day in 1 the first day of the New Year, a holiday widely celebrated in all regions of the country.
The purpose of the study, commissioned by Ford, is to remind drivers of the dangers of driving a motor vehicle the next day after drinking alcohol. For example, in the UK, each detention for driving in a drunken state occurs - between 6 and 8 hours of the morning.
Even if the concentration of alcohol in the driver's blood is below the legal limit, it still represents a certain risk to road users. By his behavior, he resembles a rather sleepy person, whose reactions are slowed down.
