Most drivers will be aware that drinking alcohol or taking some types of drugs will affect a person’s ability to operate a vehicle and in some cases is illegal.

However what many won’t be aware of is how their cognitive responses are affected, and the consequences of being caught with alcohol or drugs in their system when behind the wheel.
