Is Driving Under the Influence Worth the Risk?…

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs really worth the risk of jail time, huge fines, suspended licenses, car accidents, or even death? For those with a functioning brain, the answer is obviously, “no”, it’s definitely not worth the risk. However, why is it that although many people are aware that drinking and driving don’t mix, driving under the influence continues to be a big problem for a number of American states?

Arrogance and poor judgment (perhaps as a result of the alcohol or other controlled substances) are usually the main reasons why people drive under the influence of alcohol and other drugs, and although fairly common human weaknesses can lead to a DUI or worse, these weaknesses should be fought tooth and nail so that not only a DUI can be avoided, but serious accidents which oftentimes do lead to serious injuries, death, and lengthy prison sentences can be avoided as well.

Without a doubt, there are a great number of safe driver resources which can be applied which can lead to the avoidance of drinking and driving! Giving your keys to someone else, asking a friend, family member, or coworker to drive you home, calling a taxi, or even gaining the strength to abstain from alcohol are all strategies which can be used to avoid a costly DUI or serious accident. No matter which strategy for avoiding driving while intoxicated is used, you will certainly be glad you used that strategy the next time you hear of someone being pulled over or involved in an accident as a result of driving under the influence. Be smart about drinking and driving, and also be sure to learn more about how to continue to stay safe on the road!
