Car accidents can happen when we least expect them, and the impacts of some of these incidents can be quite severe. One action that puts people on roads at risk is the criminal activity of drunk drivers. These individuals are acting recklessly and putting the lives of other people in danger. Drunk drivers could cause accidents that have lethal consequences.
