So How Does a Person Choose to Drink and Risk Getting a DUI?

Choose to drink and drive – how does a person do it?!

This is a re-post of a 10-minute show that I did with Pen TV in which I shared the science and brain research that explains why a person may “choose” to drink and risk getting a DUI and why knowing this may stop a person from doing so.

Again, I want to thank Warren Slocum, CEO of Peninsula Television (PenTV); Arturo Samayoa, owner of Nimbus Design; and Rocky Robinson, PenTV’s Engineer and Editor, for making this show possible.

And, as you will hear at the end of the program, my objective with these 10 minutes shows is to encourage important “conversations” through viewer and reader comments on this Blog. So please feel free to add your thoughts and/or pass it along…
