According to a recent study in the UK, driving with a cold (DWC) is more dangerous than driving under influence (DUI). Or maybe DUI should mean Driving Under Influenza.

The study shows that reaction times when driving, or riding a motorcycle, with a cold or flu drops your reaction time by 36 milliseconds, while driving with 4 pints of beer in you, slows you down 15 milliseconds.

Sneezing Biker

Apparently when driving under influence of a cold/flu makes you drive closer to other vehicles, and when sneezing, you take your eyes of the road. The severity of the cold does not change this risk. Your alertness is effected by the cold/flu, the chemicals in your brain changes your mood, memory and movement.

So just know the risk when you've got a cold or flu, and you ride off on your motorcycle. You stand a bigger chance of an accident. So maybe one day the cops will pull you over because you've got a flu.
