Should you use a designated driver?

DWIs can take place anywhere and may even happen when you're not in a car. You could get a DWI while driving a boat or even while riding a lawnmower in some situations. Using any vehicle while under the influence puts you in a position where you could be stopped, accused of driving drunk and arrested.

Driving when intoxicated can quickly cause problems for you. If you cause a crash, you could be charged for harming or killing another person on top of being intoxicated and reckless. Even worse, if you have passengers or children in your vehicle, you could face penalties that are much more significant, going as far as to threaten your ability to keep custody of your child in the most severe cases.

Your DWI could affect others, even without an accident

There are many ways that a DWI can change the way your future looks. You might lose your job or have difficulties getting there on time. People around you may develop a negative opinion of you. Financially, you could be stressed by the pressure of paying for the DWI's fines and fees while also trying to keep or find a new job.
