WUVT would like to remind you not to drink and drive. It doesn't matter if you've had one drink or ten, if you are driving a hundred miles or just one. Alcohol impairs your motor coordination, and if you get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohold, you could kill yourself or someone else. So do everyone a favor and make sure you do not drive while under the influence of alcohol.
