How serious is drunk driving in Louisiana?

If you are have lived in Louisiana for any length of time, you know that the state has very strong laws against drunk driving. Public awareness campaigns and sobriety checkpoints at holidays or other times throughout the year also serve to highlight the risks associated with driving after consuming alcohol. Sadly, there seem to be too many people who refuse to heed the warnings and instead choose to get behind the wheel when impaired. Even worse is the fact that innocent people die because of these choices.

Louisiana residents who are concerned about the dangers posed to them by people who make the choice to drive after drinking should know that these risks are not faced only on the road. Operating a boat while or after consuming alcohol can be equally dangerous to drivers and passengers alike. It is for this reason that the laws recognize driving while intoxicated charges as applicable to boaters as well as to drivers of automobiles.

In Louisiana, if you are intoxicated, you can still legally ride your bicycle.
