A sober driver agrees to abstain from alcohol so that he or she can drive their vehicle safely.
When going out with others drive sober, using a sober driver, or designated driver can literally save your life and those around you. While the group is drinking freely, you, the sober driver, drink a soft drink or any alcohol-free alternative.
Preventing drunk driving is very important. There are severe consequences if you are pulled over while driving under the influence, such as serious fines, jail time, and the possibility of revoking your driver’s license, if you are a repeat offender. When you drive drunk you are not only risking injury to yourself, but also to your passengers, other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.
The Department of Justice estimates that over 1.4 million people drive drunk every year. Some are arrested before any damage is done, but others cause serious car accidents in which catastrophic injuries and death are too often the result.
If you’ve been involved in an accident where the other driver was under the influence, you deserve significant compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering. Even if your injuries are minor, you should not be held responsible for the damages caused by a drunk driver.
