The Hazards Of Consuming Alcohol Prior To Driving

A person who consumes alcohol is in a very different state both physically and emotionally immediately the alcohol gets into the blood. Even if the person cannot be said to be legally intoxicated, the person is still in an altered state.

There are laws in place that forbid people from operating any kind of heavy machinery after they have been drinking alcohol.

It is however very common to hear that one individual or the next did not obey this law. More and more people are losing their lives on a daily basis because a driver got behind the wheel drunk and caused an accident along the way.

Of late, airline pilots are also forbidden to get into the cockpit if they have been consuming alcohol. These laws were put in place when concerns were raised that some pilots have been flying commercial jets while under alcoholic influence.

In the same way that there are drivers who ignore the laws forbidding them to get into the driver’s seat after drinking, there are pilots who also step into the cockpit while drunk. For those who are flying private jets, they know that they do not have to go through any alcoholic tests before flying like the commercial airline pilots and therefore do not think twice about it.

It is therefore not unheard of that there is a plane in the sky that is being flown miles by a drunken pilot. They do not realize that their vision is impaired and they also cannot coordinate as well as when they are sober so the risk of them crashing the aircraft is much higher.

The passengers in the plane, pilots flying with them or in other planes and even the people on the ground are thus all in danger due to this drunken pilot. Depending on the attitude that the plane may crash from and the size of the aircraft and how much jet fuel it has, the crashes can be extremely fatal.

Although it can never be compared to the suffering caused, there are financial compensations for those who are injured due to plane crashes that occurred because the pilot was flying after drinking alcohol. In such a case, this person who was injured should make sure that before they take any legal action they consult a legal professional.
