The Hazards of Drunk Driving

It is quite ordinarily known that the drunkards tend to be the major reason behind the destruction of valuable and innocent lives. Drunken drivers put their as well as others’ lives at stake, causing severe accidents, injuries as well as irrecoverable loss of property. However, the fact that the drunken driver has to remain behind the bars for an extended period remains neglected. He is imprisoned for a fault which was made by him when he was not in his senses. His regret of making a choice to drive being a drunkard and impact of killing the innocent ones is known by very few people. How can he come out of the regret of injuring or killing someone because of his own negligence?

Drunken driving is continuing to be a major problem in the United States. Strict actions are being taken by the states, against the drivers whose Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is 0.8 and above. They are supposed to be penalized in a harsh manner if found guilty. Drunken drivers are held accountable for injuring innocent victims by the State Legislatures and Courts. They are either sent to jail or huge penalties are imposed on them for offending rules.

Each year, about 17,000 people are killed, while hundreds of thousands are injured due to these accidents. So, it is high time to take an initiative in order to create awareness among people regarding the consequences of drunken driving. As per survey nearly, eighteen million Americans are considered to be alcoholics.

“Binge Drinking” is the latest trend being followed by the college students. They tend to consume alcohol in such large quantities which turns out to be the reason behind their deaths. Due to binge drinking, they ultimately lose their ability to make sound decisions by reaching the hazardous stages of Blood Alcohol Concentration, which stops them from driving in a safe manner.

It should be understood that drunken driving kills and should be prevented as much as possible. To better understand the risks, bring it down to your level. Is the risk of killing or injuring a fellow citizen worth it? Hopefully most do not think so. If you drink, call a cab (www.naplestaxi.com), don’t take the risk.
