With super high pollen level counts and issues with hay fever around this time of year loads of people are reaching for antihistamines. While they are great for relieving the allergy symptoms they can also cause blurry vision and sleepiness. Drug-driving is a crime even if people just take over-the-counter medicines.

Cabs, Uber, and Lyft, not just for night time parties.
