Bastiaan drinks alcohol and drives a car | Drugslab

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

I never drink and drive.
This just feels unnatural. Hi, I’m Dzifa.
-And I’m Bastiaan. Welcome to our Drugslab.
-As you can see we’re not in the lab… but at a driving school,
because I’m going to drink and drive. We’ve done alcohol before on Drugslab.
You can watch the videos on YouTube. Over 11 million people drink alcohol
regularly in the Netherlands. It’s considered normal.
That was apparent in your comments. You don’t even consider alcohol
as a ‘real drug’, but it really is. One in ten of all car accidents
are alcohol-related. That means that one in ten
car accidents could be prevented. I think most people don’t realise
how dangerous it is to drink and drive. Have you ever done it, honestly?
-Never. I swear. Not even as a passenger.
It’s scary. You’re playing with your life. It’s not smart to drink and drive.
Two units impair your driving skills. That increases
the chance of an accident. That’s why there are laws
concerning your blood alcohol content. Blood alcohol content
is expressed in mg/ml. 0.5 mg/ml means… that one millilitre of blood contains
half a milligram of pure alcohol. Not every millilitre of pure alcohol
leads to the same BAC. Pure alcohol distributes into body fluid,
which varies from person to person. Heavy people have more body fluid
than people who weigh less… so that means if they both drink
the same amount of alcohol… the person who weighs less
is affected more. It’s tricky, but you know what I mean. Furthermore, there’s a difference
between men and women. Women have less body fluid
per kilogram body weight… so they are affected more
by the same amount of alcohol. As an experienced driver
you’re allowed to have 0.5 mg/ml. How long have you had a license?
-About six years. Every country has their own rules
concerning blood alcohol content. In Luxembourg for example…
-It’s 0.35 mg/ml. In Hungary you’re not allowed
to drink at all. That’s good. In the Netherlands it’s 0.5 mg/ml,
so that’s what we’re going to test. Santé, as they say.
-Cheers. After ten minutes you can feel
the first effects of alcohol. It takes longer when you eat more,
so you should eat well before drinking. It doesn’t mean you can handle more,
it just takes longer to feel the effects. You won’t feel much
after one glass of alcohol… but after two or three glasses
you could start to feel slightly tipsy. This is my second glass of beer. The body breaks down alcohol at a rate
of one unit per 60 to 90 minutes. It depends on your drinking experience,
age and body weight. You can’t speed it up by drinking water
or coffee or by walking outside. It always takes an hour and a half.
So if you drink ten glasses… it will take 15 hours to break it down.
-That’s sick. It’s time for the breathalyser, sir. 0.5.
-Exactly 0.5. You’re allowed to drive, but can you?
-I’m curious to find out. Good morning.
-Hello. Bastiaan.
-Hans. I’m Hans.
-Dzifa. First we’re doing an obstacle course. Then an obstacle will be pushed
in front of the car. Then you’ll drive by the pylons
and turn left at the fifth yellow pylon. Then we’ll slalom between
the orange and blue pylons. Then you have to reverse park at
the parking spot with the yellow pylons. Then you have to slalom
between the orange pylons. Everyone ready?
-Yes. Yes? Then I’ll start driving. That was good.
-It was. Was that good?
-That was good. You’ve gone a bit too far. You hit one.
-Did I do it wrong? Should I try again?
-This does prove that the two beers… Then I’ll drive in reverse now.
-…are starting to do their job. The parking spot is to your left now. Did I hit something? No way.
Really? I thought I wasn’t there yet. Really?
-You hit them. I was in a sick space, so to speak.
I was focused on the pylons… but didn’t pay attention
to how close they were. This shows
how it affects your concentration. I was really focusing on this. That’s the issue.
You’re only focusing on one thing. When I focus on one thing, I can’t focus
on the rest. That’s called tunnel vision. I have to slalom back now.
Around the blue ones, right? Don’t say anything.
-That’s not fair. Which ones? The orange ones.
-Just the orange ones? Okay. I thought that two drinks wouldn’t have
much effect, as it’s legally allowed. So this should’ve been easy.
-No. It clearly wasn’t. It went a lot worse. I didn’t feel safe.
-I get that. If Hans hadn’t been there,
I probably wouldn’t have gotten in. We’re going to continue until
your blood alcohol content is 2 mg/ml. That’s a shot.
Now you have a shot and a half. Just pour it in.
-You like to live large. Bottoms up.
-Nazdrovje. That’s disgusting, isn’t it? Your body takes 90 minutes
to break down one unit of alcohol. You just drank eight units, so it will
take 12 hours for you to sober up. So even if you take a taxi home
at five in the morning… you’d not be allowed to drive a car
until five in the afternoon. You might think that you can sleep it off,
but that doesn’t work. It really takes 60 to 90 minutes
per unit of alcohol. Before we get in the car, we’re going
to check your blood alcohol content. I’m almost too afraid to watch. 2.1 mg/ml. That means you’re 17 times more likely
to cause an accident if you drive. I’m afraid to mention it…
-But luckily we have Hans. Let’s get into the car then. Okay. Wow, this is really weird.
This is so… What? What do you see?
-I don’t know. It’s just… I never drink and drive.
This just feels unnatural. Three, two, one. I thought I’d hit the brakes for you. Was that you?
-Yes, it was. I think we would’ve hit the walker
this time. Okay. One, two, three, four, five.
Now I have to turn. And now you have to slalom.
Turn left and now turn right. You’ve lost control.
-Oh, my God. This is impossible. Yes, okay. Can I try one more time?
-Sure. Just try not to drive too fast. Jesus Christ. I’m going out of my mind.
I’m completely confused now. What the fuck. I was only focusing
on slaloming between those blue things. Your head… It’s so hard. What do you see
when you approach the pylons? Nothing. I’m focusing on the blue ones
and when I see one I want to turn. I’m not focusing on everything else.
Okay. Now I have to reverse park. Don’t forget you have two mirrors. Did I hit them?
-You knocked them over. Did I knock them over? Now I see it. I did. That would’ve been a dent. You’re still not there yet. Now this one, right?
-Yes. You can do it. Don’t accelerate. Oh, Bas. That was horrible. I had tunnel vision.
I was focused on going straight ahead… and when the walker appeared,
I thought: Where did that come from? Then I thought:
Well, the granny is dead. If it had been an actual person,
you would’ve hit them. I got cocky when I reached the slalom.
I thought I’m going to rock this, but… No. You hit four pylons at least.
-And then I had to reverse park. I only saw a square of pylons.
I didn’t even see an opening. I only saw the pylons
and was only focusing on that. That’s the tunnel vision
caused by alcohol. I wanted to do well on the last slalom,
but that didn’t go well either. You become very overconfident.
You think you can do it, but… That’s scary. You didn’t even realise
how bad you were driving. A party is always fun,
having a drink to go with it as well… but what we’ve learned today is
that you should never drink and drive. Take a taxi or sleep over,
because it’s extremely dangerous. I’m very curious how I’ll feel tomorrow. I feel fine. Yesterday when I got home
and the alcohol started to wear off… I got a hangover, but I slept really well
for a long time, so I feel good now. It was a special experience, because
it feels unnatural to drink and drive. Even though we had a few laughs,
I take this very seriously… because you shouldn’t drink and drive. You saw what happened.
You can’t drive or concentrate. Your focus is gone. It’s impossible.
Let’s check my blood alcohol content. Nope. I’m completely sober.
Have a look, 0.0 mg/ml. This was Drugslab for this week. Let us know if you’re curious about
a drug or if you know a nice location. And like and subscribe, of course.
Until next time.

Hi, I really Iove your channel and the message you're trying to share. I think you're off to a great start this year, finding a new, modern way to learn about drugs. Please excuse my long winded comment below, it's a great video and I think your intentions were right but something about it has nagged at me all week.

It's clear in this video that Bastiaan is uncomfortable from the beginning about driving after a few drinks and you can tell that he wouldn't do it in another setting. The thing that I think makes alcohol the riskiest, especially when it comes to driving is that it gives you a subtle confidence and can lull you into thinking you're ok. "I've had a few drinks tonight, but I feel fine. I guess I had a good dinner, I'll be fine drive home". I don't drive when I've drank but I've been guilty of underestimating my intoxication in the moment because "I feel fine".

The first drive shows a few mistakes after two drinks and I think that's where the message shines. It's just 2 drinks, something many people wouldn't think twice about, but you're already affected. The thing that I think might get missed by some viewers is that people can feel and act sober even when they are well over the limit. That doesn't mean they are aware enough to drive though.

Other than that, thank you for everything you're doing to make the world a safer place. Your videos are informative in a very approachable way and I think that targets a demographic that might otherwise not find this stuff ♥️from ??

I'm from the Nederlands,
And I use to smoke weed when I was 18. I'm 23 now and stopped smoking for over one year now. Back in the day I would smoke, before driving, and during driving, ( put on some sunglasses if you drive during the day tho… you will thank me later) never had any problems with it. If you do drive while being baked or have a joint while you're driving home. Don't start to freak out, nobody knows that you're stoned. Keep in the right line no need to over take cars that are going faster then 110km/h. And last but not least, focus on the road. Don't go wooooooow I'm sooooooo baked/stoned.
