20/20 vision is a term used to express perfect vision (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet.

Driving under the influence impairs a person’s 2020 vision. While under the influence, some people may notice their vision is blurred or they are unable to control eye movement. Impaired vision can affect how people judge the distance between the car and other vehicles on the road. Additionally, fewer objects may be visible within a person’s peripheral vision or what can be seen to either side when looking straight ahead.

It is imperative to never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. To report impaired drivers, commuters are encouraged to dial *27 (*CP) from their cellular phone or 504-835-3116 to contact the Causeway and Huey P. Long Police dispatch.
