    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Clinical chemistry. International congress. , 1990/07.

    A motorcycle simulator was used to assess operating performance of 14 experienced motorcyclists with varying breath alcohol concentrations.

    Riding error scores in three defensive and evasive maneuvers plus distance traveled in a standard time period were documented at baseline and at predetermined intervals following controlled alcohol consumption.

    The results revealed a positive correlation between total errors and breath alcohol concentrations within a range well below the commonly accepted legal limit of intoxication of 0.10 mg/dL.

    There was a highly significant increase (p<0.0055) in an operator's tendency to leave the roadway (an error that is frequently fatal for motorcyclists), as well as a reduction in ability to complete a timed course.
