ELGIN OPP MEDIA RELEASE = “R.I.D.E. – ANYWHERE, ANYTIME”
– Motorists may be surprised to be stopped at 7am at a local R.I.D.E. program and be wondering why police are out a such an odd time of day asking if you’ve been drinking. While the majority of impaired drivers are arrested in the evening and the hours just after midnight police do find people driving impaired in the morning. Whether it is after a night of celebration and now driving into work or after staying over at a friends and now driving home, motorists may not be sober enough to be driving. “People are doing the right things by not driving home drunk and instead are choosing to take a cab, using a designated driver or staying at a friend’s house. The problem is when they wake up early and feel it’s now ok to drive because they’ve slept a bit. The fact still remains that having only a few hours of sleep may not be enough to sober you up and you may still be impaired. Getting caught by the police may be the least of your worries if you end up killing someone in a motor vehicle collision! Don’t; just plan for the evening, plan ahead for the next day as well.” stated Inspector Ryan Cox, Elgin County OPP Detachment Commander.
There are many myths about how to sober up more quickly;
- Drinking Black Coffee: Caffeine will not help your liver metabolize alcohol, and neither will any of the other ingredients in coffee. Drinking coffee while drunk may actually have a negative effect: you may feel more alert and capable of driving when, in fact, you’re still impaired.
- Taking a Cold Shower: Unless your liver hops out and takes a shower with you, this will have no effect on your level of drunkenness. Like drinking caffeinated beverages, though, it could give you a false sense of alertness.
- Getting some Fresh Air: Like taking a cold shower, this may make you feel better – and even less impaired – but it has absolutely no effect on your blood alcohol content (BAC) or liver.
- Exercising: While exercise does help the body eliminate some alcohol through sweating and breathing, the amount is negligible and won’t affect your BAC. In fact, because alcohol impairs motor skills, a drunk person engaging in vigorous exercise may actually end up hurting him- or herself by falling or bumping into something.
- Eating Food: Eating before you begin drinking can slow the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream, but eating after you drink will have zero effect on your drunkenness.
- Drinking Lots of Water: Drinking litres of water once you’re bombed will not make you okay to drive home; however, alternating a glass of water with a glass of alcohol throughout the night may help you consume less alcohol.
