Tampa Bay Monitoring reminds everyone to stay safe this Holiday season by offering tips to honor National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. They also discuss the myths around drunk driving such as:

Myth: Black coffee or a cold shower helps you to sober up.

Fact: Neither coffee or a cold shower can get rid of the alcohol in your system. There is no fast cure, only time can help you sober up.
