Seniors and Alcohol
Finally, seniors who have consumed alcohol throughout their pre-retirement years, often feel that they are well adjusted and quite capable of driving. They call themselves "funtioning alcoholics". A vehicle stop by local law enforcement may result in a different conclusion after a sobriety test is administered. Why face the possibility if it can be avoided? Hiring a companion driver should always be the only option for anyone who consuming alcohol, no matter what their "alcohol tolerance level" is.
