Don’t Drink and Drive in Germany

One thing I noticed when I first moved to Germany was that most Germans take driving-and-drinking very seriously. This may have something to do with the severe penalties in Germany. Although there are lots of things in the American media warning about it, it often tends to be ignored or not taken that seriously. That is just from my observations though. I can’t find any statistics comparing DUI/DWI incidents between Germany and the US. Google has failed me.
