When you’re drunk or high, you have big ideas, but not necessarily good ideas.
Before the party starts, you need to plan a safe ride home. If you don’t, you risk a DUI. And up to a year in jail, a $5,000 fine, a suspended license, an ignition interlock device installed in your car, legal bills… and lots of uncomfortable conversations.
So plan ahead. Drunk-you will thank you. For that matter, so will hungover-you.
Some people think that only recreational and illegal drugs like alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, or meth impair one’s ability to drive safely.
In actuality, many over-the-counter and prescription drugs like Nyquil, Ambien, pain and allergy medication can impair driving and result in a DUI.
