Road­blocks are not the only rea­son to not drink and drive.

Think about the lives you will ruin if you get in to an ac­ci­dent and kill some­one. And tak­ing the back roads is not the an­swer.

Make the shift in your mind and choose to never drink and drive, re­gard­less of prox­im­ity or like­li­ness of get­ting caught.
