The consequences of DUI are severe, especially in cases like these in which people lose their lives. On the other hand, the drunk driver has to deal all of the repercussions of their actions, monetary and otherwise. After representation, fees, and fines, the full cost of a DUI is $10,000 on average.

According to Celina Review, TxDOT recently launched an annual initiative to combat the issue. The “Drink. Drive. Go to Jail” campaign takes measures to remind drivers that they need to avoid drinking and driving and understand the severe consequences they will face if they do.

Juan Alvarez and his son died about a week after the conclusion of the campaign.

The campaign aligns with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sponsored increased enforcement period and features media and outreach events across Texas.

TxDOT has also developed a website to help people find safe rides home, called Soberrides.org. According to the website, there are options to help a person “plan a sober ride” by calling a cab or a friend, taking public transit or a pedicab, or even a limousine.
