For some people, spring’s bounty of blooming flowers, budding trees, and freshly mowed lawns is a relief from winter’s gray skies and snow piles. However, for the 50 million adults in the United States who experience seasonal allergies, spring’s blooms and buds have them dreaming of snowflakes.
What most people don’t realize is that allergies can take a toll on your driving ability. We involuntarily shut our eyes every time we sneeze and between that and reaching for the nearest tissue, drivers can quickly get distracted.
Additionally, many of the over-the-counter treatments for allergies can cause drowsiness. Impaired driving is one of the lead causes of accidents, so take these steps to make sure you make it through allergy season without causing an accident.
