Don’t Drink and Drive

Weekends are a time for relaxing. For some people, that means overindulging in alcohol. Unfortunately for drivers on the road, some of these drinkers will choose to drive afterwards. Smart revelers will designate a member of their party to be the driver and have him or her drink non-alcoholic beverages so that others can be driven home safely at the end of the party. If a designated driver isn’t available, an intoxicated driver should either find a ride home with someone who hasn’t been drinking or get himself a cab.

Drinking responsibly is what it’s all about, whatever day of the week it may be. Car accidents can happen at any time, and that one brief moment can change a life in an instant—even destroy it. People can get injured, and families can lose a loved one in the blink of an eye.

There is very little that distinguishes an ordinary DWI from a serious one. In a DWI car accident, the police may initially charge with ordinary DWI, only to later raise the charges if a severe injury or death occurs. If someone dies because of a DWI accident that you cause, you are obviously facing very serious charges. At the very least, you could be facing a Felony Death by Vehicle, which could put you behind bars for a long time.

The next time you have one drink too many, don’t risk it. Your decision could impact the lives of many people, including your own.
