Alcohol has been a major problem for traffic authorities nowadays. Teens, adults, women, and even celebrities are arrested and jailed because of driving under the influence. Aside from vehicle drivers, motorcyclists have also joined the show in DUI driving. This makes them more vulnerable to motorcycle accidents, as well as injuries.
Many male bikers think that driving after drinking makes them a real man, but they are wrong. Once they get into an accident, they would eventually realize how foolish they were to think that alcohol makes them invincible on the road.
If you love to ride your motorbike right after you drink, here are some things you may want to consider. Once you get into a DUI motorcycle accident:
- You may get injured. Consider the fact that riding a motorcycle exposes you to all sorts of injuries including head and brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, etc. And don't get me wrong, these injuries are painful, very painful.
- You may experience a financial setback. Because of your injuries, you will need to take out a large amount of money from your savings to pay your medical expenses. If you are unfortunate, you would also need to pay compensation for the other party in the accident.
- You may become disabled and lose your work. If your injuries are serious enough, you may not be able to work for some time. In worse cases, motorcycle accident victims may not be able to work permanently. Not only would you lose your job, you would also become a burden and a source of grief for your family.
- You might get killed. This is the worst possible situation you can get into. Isn't it unfortunate to die while you are on the bad side?
If you think you can handle these things, then you can continue riding your motorcycle while you are drunk. However, if you cannot bear the possible situations that these things could cause, I strongly recommend that you stop driving under alcohol influence. Remember that your decision would not only affect you, but also your finances, your work, and your family. Would you risk life's most precious things just to satisfy your craving for adventure and freedom? I guess not.
