The impact of alcohol hangover on simulated driving performance during a ‘commute to work’—zero and residual alcohol effects compared (2020)
Journal Article
Alford, C., Broom, C., Carver, H., Johnson, S. J., Lands, S., Reece, R., & Verster, J. C. (2020). The impact of alcohol hangover on simulated driving performance during a ‘commute to work’—zero and residual alcohol effects compared. Journal of Clinical Medicine, 9(5), https://doi.org/10.3390/jcm9051435

Driving is increasing across the world and road traffic accidents are a major cause of serious injuries and fatalities. The link between alcohol consumption and impaired driving has long been established and has led to legislation in many countries,...
