Now that the holiday season is here, holiday parties are in full swing. These parties often include alcoholic beverages that can lead to dangerous circumstances if the person who consumes the alcohol decides to try to drive a vehicle. Each year, 4 million people get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcohol. That puts everyone else on the roadway at risk of being injured in an accident.
All states in the U.S., including Georgia, have laws that forbid places from selling or serving alcohol to someone who isn't 21 years old. Still, some people who haven't reached that age are able to get their hands on alcohol. In approximately 88 percent of cases of a drunk driving episode for people who are 18 to 20, a male was the drunk driver.
