Driving with flu is more dangerous than driving drunk
Driving with flu is more dangerous than driving drunk

 

The new study that took place in Great Britain recently showed that drivers with flu and other SARS syndromes are more dangerous than drivers that are drunk. And as we all catch a flu once in a while, a couple of times per year to be exact, the studies’ results are really shocking. 

The sick person, especially the one that caught a cold recently may be considered worst than drunk on the road. The flu factor equals drinking three to four 0.5 liter bottles of beer. This interesting statement was made by the study’s head, the Cardiff University professor Andy Smith. He also says that people with the flu have a slower reaction to what is happening on the road than those who are drunk. The flu slows the driver’s reaction by 36 milliseconds. At the same time the amount of alcohol in the blood that exceeds the permitted level slows the driver’s reaction by only 15 milliseconds. 

This study may have some revolutionary consequences to the new highway regulations. But there’s really no guaranty that government will start making new laws based on this study. The permitted amount of alcohol in the driver’s blood in Great Britain is 0.8 ppm. 

During the three-month period while the study tests lasted 50 participants with cold and flu were compared with another group consisted entirely of healthy participants.

The results of the study are really phenomenal. This way the sick people’s attention was reduced by one third despite the gravity of their health condition. As Daily Mail paper writes, some other researchers think that when the body is fighting an infection this process affects the brain leading to mood swings, memory changes and motor skills being slowed.

At the end of the studies professor Smith summed up that every sick person that is driving a vehicle should be informed about the risks associated with his sickness. Some other recent British studies showed that speed bumps that you can find in every street of every city can help you diagnose appendicitis. So far this may be the strangest way to diagnose something.
