LIKE OIL AND WATER, DRINKING AND DRIVING DO NOT MIX.
Season’s Greetings. It’s that time of the year again, for friends, family, and parties. This is the worst time of year for drinking and driving accidents. In fact, people who drink and drive are responsible for about 23,000 deaths a year.
In recent years a great deal of attention has been devoted to solving the drinking and driving problem that plagues this country. More police patrols and roadblocks are out to find drunk drivers. Consequences for drunk driving vary according to local laws. In some areas drunk drivers can lose their license, pay a fine, have the cost of their insurance doubled or tripled, and even serve time in jail for a first offense. To understand why it’s so important to solve the drunk driving problem, it’s necessary to understand why drinking and driving is so dangerous.
