The Dangers of Driving Drunk
In the United States, you are legally considered intoxicated and therefore unable to operate an automobile when your blood alcohol content (commonly referred to as BAC) reaches 0.08. If you do operate an automobile at or above this limit and are caught, you may face criminal charges, fines, and possibly jail time.
If you injure someone in a drunk driving accident, your punishment may be much more severe. For drivers under the age of 21, the legal drinking age in the US, there is a zero-tolerance policy. That means any driver under 21 that is caught with any trace of alcohol in his or her system while driving may be charged with a DWI.
There are several ways to avoid drunk driving. You can always call a cab or a friend or family member. If your city has a public transportation system, it is advisable to use that instead of driving yourself.
Drunk driving should never be an option. If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident with a drunk driver, contact the Milwaukee car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® soon. Call 800-242-2874 for more information.
