Best Answer

Alcohol has been proven to slow your reaction time, vision, concentration, comprehension, coordination and perception. These coupled, impair a driver from safely driving and staying alert while on the road.

But with that said, how exactly does alcohol do this to your body? Alcohol is absorbed into your blood stream once taken and affects your body functions.This of course, does depend on how much alcohol one has had.
