If you’ve ever been drunk, you know that each additional alcoholic drink has a different impact on your senses, inhibitions, and thoughts. For many adults, the effect of one glass of wine or beer is relatively mild, but the impact of a second, third, or fourth drink in relatively quick succession makes a relatively greater change in your status.
For people who drink and drive, the effects of increased inebriation aren’t just internal, but are often external, too. Damaged property and injured people are the permanent, tragic consequence of the decision to seek a temporary buzz.
Statisticians and researchers have concluded that the risk of an accident for someone with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08, the legal limit for most states, is less than five percent. Just one more drink, however, doubles the likelihood of an accident to almost 7.5 percent. A couple of more drinks will not elevate risk level arithmetically, but exponentially. At the intoxicating level of 0.21 percent, the probability of an accident quadruples to more than 30 percent.
At an intuitive level, most people who drink and drive know the exponential risk that they take when they sit down behind the wheel of a car. And yet, many make that choice anyway. If a drunk driver has injured you, don’t let claims of ignorance deter you in your search for justice. It’s important to hold drivers accountable for their risky behavior.
