They cause catastrophic accidents that leave passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, and motorcyclists seriously injured – and they claim innocent lives.

Why Is Drunk Driving Dangerous?
Drunk driving is dangerous because a driver’s abilities are affected in many different ways. Alcohol can:
Delay reaction time;
Affect concentration; and
Negatively impact coordination.
With all of these impaired abilities, a driver’s likelihood of causing or being involved in an accident are greatly increased. A drunk driver may simply not see a pedestrian, may speed unintentionally, may swerve out of his or her lane, or may be too late to respond to slowed or stopped traffic. Those are just a few examples – there are many other ways impaired abilities can lead to traffic accidents.
