Why do good people drink and drive?

I've seen it so many times. People start with the best of intentions. They'll go out for a couple of beers. They have every intention of having a drink and maybe some dinner, then going home.

Good company and laughs with friends turns one drink into four. That's the problem with alcohol. The more you drink the less you see the potential for problems.

"Don't worry I'm fine to drive." Then before you know it you're in handcuffs, charged with impaired driving. Hopefully you haven't killed someone.

Your best bet? Leave the car at home. That way you will not be tempted to drive once your judgement is impaired.

Here are some recent crashes I've attended that police say involved alcohol.
