The Dangers of Drinking and Driving

Drunk driving causes thousands of accidents and deaths every year in Riverside, Calif. and across the nation, yet many continue to drink and drive. Even those who do not have an addiction that requires the help of alcohol treatment centers will often drive drunk after a party or other social outing, and this behavior can have deadly consequences. While it may seem like a harmless choice, drunk driving causes many deaths and injuries (not to mention ruined vehicles) each year. If you feel you have a problem with drinking, seek treatment as soon as possible, and never drive drunk. It’s not worth the risk. The following infographic showcases just a few of the sobering consequences that result from drunk driving.
