Staying focused, staying alert and watching out for the other motorists on the road while behind the wheel is crucial to safe driving. Alcohol influences these capabilities of a person, putting oneself and others in danger. Driving under influence is fatal and regardless of constant campaigns and awareness drives by the authorities in Washington, many drivers are arrested every year in the country for driving while intoxicated.
