Many people tend to think that the consequences end with fines, time in jail and other legal actions. That, however, is a big misconception because drunk driving charges can potentially affect your job, your reputation and your family. Those are in addition to the legal consequences you face.

When you consider that police officers will be cracking down on drunk driving over the weekend, it is easy to see why this would be paramount.
