Drunk driving can have disastrous consequences for not only the drunk driver but also innocent drivers on the road. Driving while drunk impairs your ability to think clearly and to quickly react to the situations around you. Drunk driving car accidents can cause serious injuries or fatalities, and more than a quarter of all traffic-related deaths are the result of drunk driving accidents.
