We all know that alcohol and driving don’t mix. Even one drink can impair a person and make them more likely to get into a car accident. But many people underestimate the amount of alcohol in their body and try to prove to others that they can handle it.
Unfortunately, this often leads to serious accidents. Alcohol consumption decreases judgment and slows down reaction times, both which can lead to fatal mistakes when driving.
The law is harsh on those who drink and drive. While the legal limit across the country is a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08, you could still face criminal charges of driving while visibly impaired if you are under that limit and in no condition to drive.
Drinking and driving is a serious crime that results in severe penalties. A DUI charge is not only costly, but it robs you of your freedoms. You could face jail time and lose your license. You could also lose your job and see your relationships become affected by your decision to drink and drive.
