Accidents caused by drunk driving are always preventable and often result in life-changing or even deadly consequences. Everyone has a responsibility to make the right choices and follow the laws on the road. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol impairs judgement, reaction time, and vision, making it difficult for drivers to make safe decisions on the road.
