Alcohol depresses the central nervous system, slows physical reaction time, and affects judgment. Most people become impaired after only one drink.
Alcohol decreases your attention span, which is risky when you have only a single task to perform. But what if you have multiple tasks, such as steering your own vehicle while keeping track of other snowmobiles in the area? This could be critical in an emergency situation where you must make a sudden decision.
Drinking while riding is a choice. The best way to minimize the risk of an accident is to make the wise choice—Don’t drink and ride!
Remember ... Iowa law prohibits riding a snowmobile while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or narcotics.
