|Consequences of Drink Driving|
If a person is caught with an illegal amount of alcohol in their blood stream, the police can charge them and their licence can be suspended or cancelled.
If involved in a crash, young people in particular can have major problems with car insurance if alcohol or illegal drugs are detected in the bloodstream.
Driving with alcohol in the blood stream has become socially unacceptable. The consequences are repeatedly reported by the media and the guilty convicted. After being caught drink driving people often find themselves shunned in social circles or looked upon as if they have an alcohol problem.
Drinking and driving can mean loss of licence and therefore loss of independence. Taxis, buses and rides with friends all add up emotionally and can hit the hip pocket hard.
