Consequences of Drunk Driving

Alcohol adversely affects a person’s ability to function in a number of ways. An intoxicated individual’s reaction time becomes much slower and his or her ability to judge situations and make decisions is compromised. Drunk driving can lead to actions such as:

  • Failure to adhere to traffic laws
  • Inability to judge speed, turning radius, and distance
  • Failure to use warning or traffic signals correctly
  • Failure to observe unusual traffic situations or nearby hazards
  • Failure to see pedestrians or other vehicles

There is no excuse for driving while drunk. It is an action that compromises the safety of the driver, his or her passengers, and any other nearby motorists or pedestrians.
