Study: Just one drink can impair senior citizen drivers

Updated:

Just one drink could impact the ability to drive for senior citizens, according to a new study out of the University of Florida.

Researchers tested younger and older drivers. They found younger drivers were not affected by alcohol as long as they stayed below the legal limit. Not the case for older drivers. They made more mistakes after drinking.

Researchers said legal blood alcohol levels may need to be reassessed.

They also emphasized this study does NOT prove young drivers can drink and drive safely.
