Motorists who are dehydrated make more mistakes
It’s fairly well-known that even mild dehydration can have negative effects on our ability to concentrate at work. Perhaps less well-known is that being dehydrated when driving has the same effects on the body as drink-driving. We recently came across a surprising study from 2015 on the effects of dehydration on drivers. Conducted by Loughborough University, the research suggests that having as few as five sips of water an hour while driving is equivalent to being over the drink drive limit.
