The effects can be devastating from loss of your transportation to personal injury or even death for you or someone else. Be cautious of your surroundings and be sure to leave early whenever you can so you do not have to rush. Above all else, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not drink and drive especially during this holiday weekend.
