Drinking and Driving

Drinking and driving is one of our countries strictest laws. Yet people are not phased by it. Many people who are drunk and driving risk their lives and any passenger in the car with them. In 2010 alone 32,885 people died in car crashes. Out of all that 10,228 people, 31% died from drinking and driving. The driver would have slow reaction times to brakes and red lights. Their vision would also be blurry and maybe hard to see incoming traffic resulting in death. Most of the people who drink and drive are teens. Mostly on holidays like New Years EVE and Saint Patrick's day teens would get wasted and probably get in cars not in control, and drive with their friends and risking their live all just from that one mistake.

How to Test to See if Your Drunk

Usually police would tell on the road if someone is drunk from their movements to how they talk. Their speech would be slow and slurred and be dizzy. They would have trouble hearing you or react slowly to questions. But if you wanna know how much they've been drinking then officers would use breathalyzers to show how much you have been drinking from a single breath. Then officers would get you B.A.C (blood alcohol level). If it is too high you would be arrested and if its under the limit your left with a warning.

If your are arrested you will be taken to the nearest police station to take your mug-shot and fingerprints.
