Alcohol affects a person's ability to make crucial driving decisions. You are not the only one in danger when you choose to drink and drive. You are sharing the road with everyone, including large vehicles and you increase your chances of getting into an accident. Odds of surviving an accident with a large truck are very low, so think before you drink.
