Everyone who drinks knows that driving while drunk carries serious consequences. Unfortunately, people who know they shouldn’t drink and drive are often caught in situations where their judgment can be impaired, and they choose to ignore their better judgment. People who have had too much to drink are often unpredictable. They don’t see the world as a sober person does. They anger easily and often forget the events leading to their drunken escapades when they rise in the morning. Drinking and driving isn’t hard to prevent, but some people don’t take the proper steps to prevent this illegal, dangerous situation from happening.

When It Happens
Many drunk driving or DUI incidents occur in a similar manner. The pattern is so predictable that police officers are able to make “judgment calls” when they suspect that someone is either drinking and driving or on some kind of narcotic substance and driving. Drunk driving isn’t a premeditated offense, but it still has deadly consequences for those either participating in the crime or who are affected by its existence. It usually starts at a party or at a bar. You show up to have a beer after work with friends. Compulsive nature ultimately takes its course, and one beer becomes three or four, and then a shot. Before long, hours have passed–your money is all gone and it’s time to get home. If you reach for your keys, you’re already committing a crime—intent to drive while under the influence. If you don’t stop and think about what you’re doing, you’ll end up the car. Before long, you’ll be speeding home in an erratic fashion. The way that drunk drivers pilot their vehicles is a dead giveaway for cops looking to make a DUI bust. If you continue to drive drunk, you’ll either make it home, crash your car into someone or something or get pulled over by a cop. If you get pulled over, you’ll be questioned and tested for sobriety. If your blood alcohol content is over the legal limit, then your vehicle will be impounded, and you’ll end up in jail. DUI offenses are serious crimes, crimes which the courts are more than willing to punish you for. Many people have lost their lives to the antics of drunk drivers, and many drunk drivers have lost their lives for making a terrible choice. If you continue to drink and drive on a regular basis, the chances of hurting yourself or someone else increase dramatically.
