It sounds like a broken record to many of us, but no matter how often we hear about the consequences of drinking and driving, it doesn’t quite seem to sink in. People have developed an immunity to the horrifying photos of devastating car wrecks and other such educational material intended to scare us straight. It is our goal to break down that barrier of ignorance.
Here at DUIFoundation.org, we hope to reinforce the ideal that a single drunk driving accident can permanently have a negative impact on you, passengers in your vehicle, and anyone else involved in the disaster (drivers and passengers in other automobiles and even pedestrians). Furthermore, if someone is badly injured or killed, you must take into account the misery their family and friends will face. Too many people say, “That will never happen to me,” but it is this type of denial that can be very detrimental.
Every state has different legislation in place in terms of how it handles civilians who are caught driving under the influence. No matter where you reside, we have broken down the laws for all 50 states. We even offer legal advice if you or a loved one are unfortunate enough to have been involved in a drunk driving accident.
Each state enforces varying levels of law, policy, and legislation. So no matter where you reside, the DUI Foundation aims to provide state specific facts across our entire knowledge center.
One issue we cannot stress enough is the importance of support groups for those who may have been severely injured or have lost a loved one as a result of an alcohol-related crash. Likewise, those battling an addiction to alcohol and other drugs require support and guidance to get them on the road to sobriety. We highlight some of these key programs and provide contact information for people in need.
In the end, whether you choose to drive under the influence is your decision, but we hope to make it a no-brainer.
