A good party is always irresistible. Why won’t it be? There’s plenty of food, so many friends, and there is alcohol! As appealing as it may sound, drinking to a certain extent in parties is always fun, but driving while you are drunk can result in horrific consequences. Victims of drunk driving incidents by intoxicated drivers often get their lives torn apart at the expense of another person’s negligent and irresponsible actions.
The actions of drunk drivers can lead to a number of accidents in a number of ways.
First of all, it is commonly known that drunk drivers display aggressive and confrontational behavior, especially behind the wheel. That is because their ability to judge speed and distance is impaired. This results in hazardous driving behaviors such as over speeding, failure to use turn signals, failure to realize how distant or close the other car is, and poor visibility results in failure to see pedestrians. Not only this, there are other countless ways in which drunk driving can result in horrific consequences.
One of the largest reasons for drunk driving is the failure to realize the intensity of your impairment, after getting highly intoxicated. Alcohol slows your reflexes and fools you into believing you are still good to drive.
Let’s take a look at some statistics that are bound to stop you from driving drunk:
Every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunken driving accident or crash
Drunk driving costs each adult in the United States almost $500 per year on DUI’s
An average drunk driver has driven drunk almost 80 times before their first arrest
The rate of drunk driving is the highest between 21 and 25 year olds
Each day almost 28 people die in America as a result of drunk driving car accidents
In 2011, an estimated 226 children were killed in drunk driving incidents, out of which 122 were in the car with the drunk driver
About one-third of all drunk drivers arrested are repeat offenders
It is always advisable to at least let the alcohol wear off before you get behind the wheel, and according to a scientific study neither strong coffee nor a cold shower can wear off the effects of alcohol, only time can. When you go to parties which involve alcohol, simply take it slow if you are going to drive home.
Don’t be pressurized by friends or peers who push you to go for more drinks or beers. It is always in your favor and best interest that you know and set your limits. Remember, it is better to be careful than being regretful later.
