two hands on steering wheelAs fall approaches, many people's seasonal allergies come out in full force. Weeds, mold and leaves changing often trigger common symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, watery eyes and other issues that can affect a driver's ability to operate a vehicle safely.

If you believe allergies and driving are not connected, think again. A recent study shows that some people coping with allergy symptoms had such a hard time driving safely, it was equivalent to someone whose blood alcohol level was at impaired levels. If you start to feel allergy issues coming on, take action to stay safe behind the wheel.

The first step is to start taking allergy medication. If trying an oral medication, be sure to use one that says "non-drowsy" on the label. Many people also find success with various nasal sprays to keep allergy symptoms at bay. Even if medications are not supposed to make you drowsy, try them out on a day you don't have to drive so you can evaluate how you feel. Every person has different side effects from medication and it's best to not be behind the wheel of a car when trying a new medicine.

In addition to medication, you can control allergy symptoms by keeping car and house windows closed, vacuuming often, purchasing an air purifier with a HEPA filter for the home and drinking plenty of water to flush out your system.

Allergies are a fact of life for many adults, but if you're driving a car, it's your responsibility to make sure you can drive safely. Don't underestimate the effect that allergies can have on your ability to stay alert and react in a timely manner.
