We are approaching festive season and many people will be going up and down and some of them will be travelling long disrltances for going to holidays and vacations. We will hear minister of transport warning people to be cautious on the road while driving to avoid accidents. Alcohol is one of the biggest culprit behind roads accidents.

When people are under influence of alcohol they are not thinking straight and end up causing accidents on the road and kill innocent people. Many people have perished olas a result of alcohol and some of them are left paralysed for life because if you are driving in higher speed you end up failing to stop if you see something infront of you like an animal, a person or a car. You end up killing innocent people who were driving nicely on the road. Speed kills arrive alive.

Drinking while driving increases your risk of being in an accident. Perhaps the biggest reason to not drink and drive is that doing so significantly increases your risk of being in an accident and therefore your risk of causing injury to yourself or to another person.

Car accidents are the primary danger associated with drinking and driving. When you aren't able to pay attention to the cars around you you are more likely to get into a car accident. When your reaction times are slower because of alcohol you might not hit the brakes soon enough which can cause serious accidents.

It takes most people 1 to 2 hours to process one standard drink. That means after 3 standard drinks you should wait at least 3 hours before driving. After you stop drinking, the alcohol levels in your system can continue to rise for up to 3 hours. Nothing can speed up the absorption of alcohol by your body.

Slowing down and using less fuel also means less carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere. It may not seem much to some people but if you take a look at the bigger picture reducing pollution can be the most important reason to avoid speeding
