Just One Drink Affects Driving in Older Adults

March 8, 2014

This University of Florida study was conducted to see whether non-intoxicating levels of alcohol would affect the driving skills of 72 participants who fell into one of two age groups: ages 25 to 35 and ages 55 to 70. The researchers found that having a blood alcohol level just under the legal limit of 0.08 — typically just one drink — can still affect the driving abilities of older adults.
