Unfortunately, too many people drive a car after they’ve been drinking. It doesn’t take much to be legally intoxicated, and that limit is something people often overlook. They think they’re fine, and they don’t fully comprehend the dangers and consequences of drunk driving. We’ve all heard about them numerous times, but they don’t resonate with everyone until it’s too late.

The first danger of drunk driving is that you’re putting your life and the lives of others in jeopardy. Even if you think you can drive just fine while drunk, you cannot. The drinking affects the way you think, so you are going to think you can do things that you cannot. You are not able to drive after drinking, and you have to remember again that it’s not just your life you’re putting in jeopardy but other people’s lives as well.

Another one of the dangers of drunk driving is that you could get in trouble with the law. You could wind up facing serious fines, jail time, a suspended license and more. If you think risking being pulled over isn’t a big deal, it is, so make sure that you understand all the consequences of drinking and driving.
