Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, prescription medications or even exhaustion is extremely dangerous and has heavy consequences. Avoid tragedy and injury by making responsible decisions. "Impaired driving" includes operating a motor vehicle while affected by alcohol, drugs or a medical condition that hinders your ability to drive. Impaired driving can also mean that you're tired or distracted.
In Wisconsin, drivers under the age of 21 are required by law to maintain absolute sobriety—any amount of alcohol in their system is illegal. Underage drinking is against the law, and adults should lead by example. Adults should refrain from drinking alcohol before taking on the responsibility of operating a vehicle and encourage teens to do the same.
