Do not get behind the wheel of a car if you find yourself under the influence of drugs or alcohol. By being responsible, you can keep yourself and others on the road safe. When buzzed or drunk, it is best to request an Uber, Lyft, or a taxi. If possible, reach out to a family member or a friend to come and pick you up.
