Thinking of driving drunk
Thinking of driving drunk? These are the risks

Driving drunk is a risk that no one should take. The fact is: Alcohol (As well as other drugs) and driving simply do not go together. Driving requires a person to be able to make quick decisions on the road, to react to changes in the environment and execute specific, often difficult maneuvers behind the wheel. When somebody is drinking alcohol, or being distracted for any reason, driving becomes dangerous and potentially lethal!

Even knowing the risk that driving drunk carries, millions of people worldwide do it and keep doing it as long as they keep getting home safely. Problem is that just because an accident hasn’t occurred to these people, it doesn’t mean that it can’t happen.

Here are 5 facts about driving drunk:

  • An estimated 32% of fatal car crashes involve an intoxicated driver or pedestrian. (NHTSA)
  • 3,952 fatally injured drivers tested positive for drug involvement. (FARS)
  • Over 1.2 million drivers were arrested in 2011 for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. (FBI)
  • Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens, and about a quarter of those crashes involve an underage drinking driver. (SAMHSA)
  • On average, two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime. (NHTSA)

Alcohol affects you in a way that changes your judgment, depth perception as well as vital motor skills required to drive safely. Always remember that nothing is more important than your legal status or life, take a cab, protect yourself as well as others on the roadways, don’t think of driving drunk to become another statistic.
