Any drunk is too drunk to drive. Even at less than twice the legal limit (almost drunk) even if you're too tired... DO ... NOT.... ATTEMPT... TO.... DRIVE....!!! Even after two or three drinks a person's reflexes, vision, coordination, etc., may be affected enough to prevent them from driving safel…y. A person who is intoxicated doesn't realize they are drunk; they think they are just as sober as one who has had nothing to drink. So anytime you plan to go to clubs, bars, etc., always have a designated driver or call a cab. A life (or lives) is NOT worth the risk; just ask the millions of people who have lost a loved one due to drunk driving. ( Full Answer )
Its can kill you or another person. Taking someones life away or yourself away from everything you love. So stop Drinking and Driving Now
The main cause in all drinking and driving cases is drinking alcohol past the legal limit. To make sure the limit is known all across the country, I would check out this site to see what the legal limit is per state: http://duilawyernow.org/
The consequences of drunk driving are severe injury or death. Wether or not you crash, you will probably be arrested and sent to jail.
While being drunk and behind the wheel you could take innocent lives. Drunk driving impairs your ability to stay alert and driving in general.
People don't know why they drive when they are drunk. When you are sober you think that you would not drive drunk. But when you are drunk, that's a different thing all together... You do stupid things when drunk.
drunk driving in Florida is cosidered as someone drinking under age or drinking achohol while driving (wich could cause severe crashes)
A night in the drunk tank with some Nasty people until bailed out...usually for $115
On the highway, roads, anywhere where there is an operation of a vehicle while intoxicated on alcohol : http://duilawyernow.org/
Yes, or course it is. While drunk, a person does not have full control over their own bodies, let alone trying to safely operate a vehicle, too. yes, the person who wrote that is VERY correct. So don't drink and drive! -anonymous-
If people took their responsibilities to the rest of the population seriously, this serious problem would not claim as many lives as it does.. The legislation that is in effect is quite adequate.. But unfortunately the courts seem to hand out such lenient punishments for driving under the influenc…e, that there is no deterrent factor. In some European countries the consequences can be very severe. A 1 year driving ban then having to retaking a driving test (which takes up to three months) and a fine up to 5000 Euro really does have desired effect.. Where as in other countries three endorsments and a Â£200 fine are the most common punishments.. Whether in the U.S., Canada or anywhere else if you know of someone that is driving drunk then it's your duty to phone the police, give the license # of the vehicle that person is driving and let them take their lumps. If you don't and they end up killing themselves, or worse yet killing an innocent person (possibly even a child) then you are classified as an enabler. In British Columbia, Canada about two years ago legislation's was thinking of the Host or Hostess being responsible for their guests driving home drunk. Obviously this law sunk to the bottom and thank heavens it did. If I feel one of my guests has had too much to drink I suggest they stay over-night; I try to get the keys from them or offer to call them a cab (at my expense!) More than not drunks feel they can drive and refuse all offers. If this is the case I'd turn that person in! Call me a rat, whatever, but I don't want to be part of this person killing themselves or anyone else. I've thankfully only had to do it once. My name was not given out so this person still doesn't know who did it. Drunks feel that they are in control of themselves and you will NEVER convince them otherwise. They are a disaster waiting to happen. If anything, don't just think of the idiot driving drunk, but the many people out there this person could kill. . If you are with this drunk person, then give him/her more drinks to consume so you make sure that the person blacks out or falls asleep. It would be easier to get him into a cab or a taxi and prevent him from driving. That would avoid being caught with a DUI and causing an accident. . Take their car keys away. . tie them to a chair.

MADD is the main one it stands for Mothers against drunk driving. The woman who founded MADD stated it because her only daughter was killed by a drunk driver who was her neighbour.
The police pull you over,then they take you out and talk to you,you go back in your car and wait,then they either give you a warning or take you to jail (just for the day,bcuz the jury needs to see you)
The consequences could be a suspension or total loss of your license, depending on the outcome of this experience could mean jail, and the loss of your job is at risk as well.
depends on the state. I believe that all states are either 0.1 or 0.08 Nope, wrong! New Mexico=0.8 and in other states it's 0.10, that's why iTook health :]
Nothing.. Drunk driving is dangerous for the driver, his/her passengers, other cars on the road, and pedestrians. It is an illegal practice and extremely unsafe - many times, fatal.

Alcohol, as you probably know, can affect your sense of balance, coordination, vision, and can reduce your inhibitions; all of which are involved in driving and may lead to traffic accidents. By the way, It's never a good idea to drink and drive.
Driving drunk affects your driving several ways. First of all, your thought processes and reflexes are slowed down, so you are not able to react to the road or anything else around you as quickly as you could sober. Further, your depth perception is off. This means that you could hit a car/person/et…c. in front of you or not stop at a stop sign or red light simply because you don't realize how close it is to your vehicle. This combination of slow reflexes and bad judgment greatly affect your ability to drive safely. I don't know why you're asking this question, but if it's because you're seriously considering drinking and driving, DON'T! ( Full Answer )

(in the US) In most (all?) states the maximum legal blood aclcohol limit is .08 percent.
Skills necessary to driving are impacted by drinking alcohol.. The alcohol we drink literally enters our bloodstream in a measurable amount. We measure the amount as a mass per volume percentage. This is the reading of .xx for a blood alcohol content measurement known as a BAC level.. Countless st…udies have linked various BAC levels with their associated impact on driving skills.. Both North and South American continents and most of Europe are all in agreement that a BAC of .08 is sufficiently detrimental to driving skills to deem driving with a .08 illegal.. Around 900,000 people are arrested for DUI each year in America. About 1/3 of those are repeat offenders.. About 13,000 people die each year in DUI-related accidents..

I think drunk driving is worse because you can get in a car accident, but also when you drunk walk a car can run into so there is no difference. (well I think so)
Thousands of innocent people around the world are killed by drunk drivers every year. Unfortunately, the drunk drivers themselves, usually aren't killed in their own accidents.
Drunk drivers account for thousands of deaths and injuries every year because their mental and physical abilities are impaired by alcohol which result in car accidents .
drunk driving depresses one's brain and as a result one is unable to make good judgements on the road.
As far as I know - no. But you can get done for reckless endangerment or something like that, get fined and maybe even lose your license that way. You most certainly can . Even on you riding mower.
Immediately after you finished your last drink and turned on the ignition in your car and began driving.
It varies from state to state and depends on how many prior DUIs you have.
Think about it for a minute. If your blood alcohol is zero, you are not drunk. You have not likely had a drink. That would be the vast majority of drivers on the road. Logistically, it would be impossible to pull over all drivers and test them for 0% alcohol.
VERY BAD. Do you know what would probably happen? The drunk driver could go to sleep while driving and kill theirself and other people. The drunk driver could go crazy and swirve all on the road and injure many innocent people. That's why they make sings that says dont drink and drive. Also the pers…on driving drunk could get life in prison or a big chunk of their life in prison. ( Full Answer )
It is not illegal to drive people who are drunk. In fact it is the best thing to do for a person who is drunk instead of letting the person drive his or her own vehicle while drunk. That is why "designated drivers" are important.
Misdemeanor drunk driving is when you are stopped by the police for erratic driving and it is obvious to the police that you have been drinking, and it is your first drunk driving offense. You are charged with felony drunk driving when there are aggravating circumstances such as causing an accident …or bodily harm to a person other than yourself, whether that person is a passenger in your car or not. This is a felony regardless of whether it is your first offense. It is also a felony when you are driving drunk while a child under the age of 16 is a passenger in the car. ( Full Answer )

Have breathalysers in all cars so you can't start the car until you breathe into it.
Yes, but we need to be aware of the drunk driving problem every month of the year.
Depends on the state. In AZ, it is 10 days in jail, first offense, plus a fine, I think it's $250. And, a point on your record. And, you get a court-ordered ignition lockout on the car, at your expense, and for a year, I think. That is, if your car is new enough to take one. That is, for a simple DU…I and not double the BAC limit or aggravated or causing accident while under the influence, vehicular manslaughter, underr age, etc. I think CA is a fine and point, only. Last I was there. NY had a mandatory prison on first DUI for a while--I don't know if it was shot down or not. I'm sure the ACLU jumped in and protested. Anywhere, it is at least the fine and a point. ( Full Answer )
In most states, yes. One exception would be Wisconsin, where the first offense of drunk driving is a civil forfeiture.
