A new study has revealed that half of all drinkers who take to the road are still under the influence because they misjudge how long it takes your blood alcohol concentration or BAC level to wear off making you safe to drive.

The study found that 53% of the 1,800 drivers miscalculated the recovery time needed after four drinks at night with most thinking they would be sober enough to drive between 8am and 10am the next day, when in actuality they are still intoxicated and would not be safe to drive until 11am.

“You have a false sense of security when you have had a night’s sleep. It is like having a fresh start,” the Daily Express quoted Hunter Abbott, managing director of AlcoSense, who commissioned the survey, as saying and all of us here at Cleared2Drive couldn’t agree more.  Before installing Cleared2Drive Systems fleet wide to keep impaired workers from causing an accident harming themselves or others, a large percentage of our commercial customers reported most of their worker’s DUI or DWI accidents were in the morning not after lunch or in the evening as most people think.  This is especially prevalent in school bus drivers.

There is only one thing that sobers a person up – time; and, there is the only one patented Impairment Detection Technology available anywhere in the world – Cleared2Drive.
