Course Outline

  • Don’t drink and ride. Studies have found that riders had consumed alcohol in:
    • Thirty percent of all off-road riding fatalities.
    • Fourteen percent of all reported accidents.
  • Alcohol depresses the central nervous system, affects judgment, and slows reaction time.
  • Alcohol makes it difficult to pay attention, especially to multiple tasks.
  • Most people become slightly intoxicated after only one drink.
  • Over-the-counter drugs, as well as prescription drugs like tranquilizers and barbiturates, have effects similar to alcohol.
  • Marijuana reduces your ability to see at night and slows your reflexes.
  • Amphetamines or cocaine can increase focus temporarily but lead to fatigue when the drug wears off. They also produce mild euphoria, which alters judgment and leads to reckless behavior.
