Underage Drinking and Driving in Wisconsin
Drinking and driving is never a good idea. If you are under 21, drinking and driving can have dire consequences on your future, resulting in the loss of your license as well as other penalties.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, alcohol-related car accidents are at their peak in April, May and June, when it is the season for prom and graduation parties.
