Popular myths lead people to believe they can drive after drinking. They offer up no shortage of excuses:
Unfortunately, even small amounts of alcohol, especially coupled with nighttime darkness and fatigue, not to mention possible inattention of other drivers, can be enough to create an accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
To combat the uptick in impaired driving, many law enforcement agencies set up more DUI checkpoints than usual. These additional checkpoints may seem like a nuisance, but they are intended to deter people from driving when they should not.
Driving under the influence can lead to arrest, license suspension, and insurance surcharges if caught. It can also result in your death or the death of someone else.
