The most obvious effect of drunk driving would be a minor or horrible crash which can cause broken bones, parallelization, brain damage, and worse of all, but very common, death.
Cars will be wreaked, but that doesn't even compare to the fact that you could hurt or kill yourself and others with you in the car if driving intoxicated; so when you drink think before you drive. Be smart.
