If you live and drive in New Jersey, you may know that a person who is convicted of a driving while intoxicated offense may end up facing some pretty serious consequences. Depending on the specific circumstances, these consequences may include high fines, the loss of driving privileges, the required use of an ignition interlock device and more. However, it seems that even with these penalties in place, there remains a high number of people who continue to drink and drive.
Awareness of the dangers of both drunk driving and cell phone use while driving has increased greatly in recent years, so much so that many in Clinton may be more cognizant of avoiding such practices. Yet there exists another form of dangerous driving behavior that does not get nearly as much exposure: eating and drinking while driving. Indeed, information shared by Exxon Mobil shows that as many as 70 percent of drivers admit to eating while behind the wheel, while 83 percent say that have consumed beverages while driving.
Construction is an innately difficult and dangerous career to pursue, which is one reason why it pays so well compared to other jobs. You will have to either use your physical strength or dangerous tools to help build or repair structures, some of which may be many stories tall. Even the contractors working on residential properties can find themselves in danger of falling while on the job.
