Research shows driving with allergy symptoms is like driving drunk

THE NETHERLANDS – Apparently, your allergies aren’t just annoying, they’re big trouble when you’re behind the wheel.  A new study from The Netherlands has found drivers with classic allergy symptoms — coughing, sneezing, and itchy, watery eyes — were just as impaired as drivers with a .03 blood alcohol level.

People with allergy symptoms drove 60 minutes with a camera recording them. Apparently, they swerved just as much as if they had been drinking. Which obviously isn’t a good thing.
