Avoid DUI or DWI

You have heard it many times, driving while impaired or intoxicated is the number one traffic safety problem in the US.
Driving safely after drinking alcohol or taking other drugs is simply not possible.
What Alcohol Does
As a driver you will be making hundreds of decisions for every mile you drive. Alcohol slows reflexes and reaction time needed to make those decisions. 

Getting arrested for DUI or DWI is costly. You will need Bail, you will need a DWI Attorney, and you may end up loosing your license to drive or going to prison.

Teens involved with underage drinking or possession may loose their ability to even get a "Driver License"

Other Drugs
Many other drugs including some over the counter drugs can affect your driving ability.
If you are taking medication, check the label.
If you're not sure ask your pharmacist or doctor.

NOTE:
Driving under the influence of certain drugs is a misdemeanor.
A misdemeanor means it is a crime punishable with a jail term of up to one year.
The possession of the drugs is a felony.
A felony is a crime punishable with a jail term greater than one year.
Combining alcohol with other drugs can not only impair your driving abilities, it can cause serious health problems, like a coma, or even death.
