There will never be too many warnings against drinking and driving because even though we are constantly reminded of this message, people do it anyway. Thinking they are good at driving even while under the influence, thinking that they won’t get into an accident, think they won’t be pulled over, people drive after having drinks.
But people do get into accidents and pulled over. These people too thought it wouldn’t happen to them. Some end up in the hospital, some in jail, and the worst ones – a death bed. Imagine what that person’s family and friends go through. Imagine if it was you.
There are so many alternatives to driving – taxi, Uber, Lyft, the bus, a sober designated driver, call someone to pick you up. You can even call the cops to drive you home. If you’re hammed, definitely do not drive. If you had one drink, still think twice about getting behind the wheel. This is a responsibility you need to take for yourself and for others because getting behind the wheel while drunk puts others at risk too. On top of that, don’t let your friends and family members drive home drunk either.
Do you want to end up in jail? Do you want to have this point on your record? Do you want to have to pay to get out of jail? Definitely not.
