Oregon mom admits to drinking before picking up kids at school

Despite the fact that arrests for drunk driving are fairly common, many people assume that no matter how risky their behavior, they're immune from being pulled over for such an offense. We often assume that drunk drivers are always alcoholics, that they're habitual offenders and that they all belong in jail. But anyone can make the mistake to drink and drive, and the consequences are serious and long-lasting, no matter who you are.

As many people who have been accused of drunk driving know, you don't have to be an alcoholic to make a bad judgment call.

Driving drunk can result in more than just a police pullover

People who are pulled over and arrested for drunk driving can consider themselves lucky, in one respect. If police determine they're intoxicated and stop them from driving before they get into an accident, it means the driver won't run the risk of injuring himself or others in a crash.

But many people take things farther than that.
