Drinking and driving is an extremely dangerous activity and should always be avoided. When you drink and drive your reaction time is slowed down, your concentration is reduced and your ability to detect positions of objects is impaired among other things. All of these things contribute to a greater likelihood of being involved in a car accident, which could lead to injuries and even death. Drinking and driving is not worth putting your life or someone else’s life at risk.
