Driving drunk is never a good idea, if a member of the police catches you drinking and driving or suspects that you are under the influence they will pull you over and ask for some simple tests, such as a breathalyzer test that calculates your blood alcohol concentration levels.
If you fail these tests by getting over the legal limit of blood alcohol concentration and you were drinking and driving, your driver’s licence will be immediately, you will be fined, you can spend time in jail, you will receive at least 4 demerit points, and your insurance cost will go up in cost.
Your mind could be on something else rather than seeing that pedestrian or seeing that light turn red.
It is very important that you should not drive when you are in an emotional state!
Being fatigued can cause your eyes to get heavy and sometimes cause you to fall asleep in the driver’s seat.
This is dangerous because you could go off the road or even go into oncoming traffic. Inexperience is a common cause of accidents in Canada.
Drugs can cause you not to think through decisions before making them.
When under the influence you have control over your body and who knows what would happen, it could be as extensive as waking up in the hospital or not waking up at all.
Impaired driving is a very serious and dangerous issue that many people are charged and prosecuted for.
The six basic types of impaired driving are alcohol, advance age, drugs, emotions, fatigue, and inexperience.
