Top 4 Reasons To Not Drink And Drive

According to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), someone is injured in a drunk driving accident every 2 minutes in the United States. It can only be assumed that in bigger cities and tourist traps the number is much higher than average. Most offenders don’t set out looking to harm others, they simply are too inebriated to judge their own abilities. However, that inebriation can be extremely harmful to the people around you, and that is just one reason why it is essential that you never drink and drive. Here are a few other reasons one should not drink and drive.

Abilities Become Impaired

Alcohol is a depressant. That is to say, alcohol slows down a person’s reaction time. Thus, you cannot respond appropriately to driving hazards while drunk. Even if you’ve only had a couple of drinks your blood alcohol level can be much over the legal limit. However, you may not notice that you are too drunk to drive, because alcohol also slows down your judgement. That is something super dangerous and scary, especially on the road. If you were to get in an accident you could spend a lot of time in jail and get a hefty fine. There is no way to cover up being drunk. Time is the only thing that can sober a person. No amount of coffee or cold showers will help you pass a breathalyzer.

It’s Not Just You

It’s easy to disregard your own safety. After all, you’ve kept yourself alive for how long now? However, could you ever forgive yourself if you injured another person? A child? That would be such a terrible thing to remember and deal with your whole life. It just isn’t worth it. Staying off the roads while you are drunk is essential to not only keeping yourself safe, but also keeping the people around you safe. While you are intoxicated your judgement is impaired and there is no way to really know what you are doing. In order to keep yourself and those around you safe it is a good idea to always have a responsible and sober party with you whenever you drink that way you can be sure to avoid any accidents.

It’s Expensive

Even if no one gets hurt, a DUI is expensive for years to come. Though it differs from state to state, a DUI will stay on your record for several years costing you not only a ticket, fines, jail time, and insurance, but possibly the loss of your license. This is something that can even cause you to lose your job and without work, it’s hard to pay fines that accrue interest. Not to mention that those you injure or disturb can always hire an attorney, such as a Drunk Driver Accident Attorney that specializes in drunk driving accidents. If you’re planning a vacation, just be sure to be smart and avoid trouble.

There’s no Need

There’s no reason to drive drunk, especially when you are putting yourself and others in danger. It’s as simple as calling an Uber, or hailing a cab the old fashioned way. You don’t even have to designate a sober driver anymore, they are everywhere and at your fingertips! Why risk your job, your reputation, your life, and worst of all, the lives of others when so many resources are available? Always be with a sober friend when you drink, or just don’t do it!!

Overall, just be smart! If you’ve had even a single drink, call a driver to take you where you need to go. The only acceptable number of drunk driving accidents is zero!
