Sir, how many Claritins have you had tonight?!?
Apparently, your allergies aren’t just annoying, they’re big trouble when you’re behind the wheel. A new study from The Netherlands has found drivers with classic allergy symptoms — coughing, sneezing, and itchy, watery eyes — were just as impaired as drivers with a .03 blood alcohol level.
Yeah, the people tested drove 60 minutes with a camera recording when they swerved; apparently, allergy symptoms make you feel flu-like, which not. Good.
And, here in DFW, we know a thing or two about allergy season, which seems to be year-round, right? So, what’s it going to be? Sneezing or swerving?
