Driving under the influence typically refers to alcohol use, but drug use can also impair drivers and cause severe car accidents. In either situation, enjoying cocktails at happy hour, celebrating with drugs or alcohol, drinking too much wine for dinner and unwinding after a long week at work results in too many motorists driving under the influence. Controlled substances impact each person differently, making it common for someone to misjudge his or her level of impairment. These poor judgments can lead to severe and sometimes fatal car accidents.
