Drunk Driving and Fatalities

It is difficult to understand why someone would willingly do something that would greatly increases the risk of death to him or herself and to others. However, despite the fact that the dangers of drunk driving are well known, people continually decide to get behind the wheel after having too much to drink. Drunk driving drastically increases the risk of car accident fatalities and is a threat to everyone on the road.
