Operating a motor vehicle is a risky thing to do. Often weighing several tons and moving at high speeds, a vehicle accident can have devastating effects. Because of the potential for so much damage and the risk that is present every time a person drives, many laws have been established to ensure that people operating vehicles are alert and focused on the task at hand.
Unfortunately, not ever driver is always so alert. While even a minor distraction can have serious consequences, operating a vehicle while intoxicated can be disastrous. As such, the state of Oklahoma has established strict penalties for individuals who are found to be driving while intoxicated.
