driving under the influence
Hello all! Thank you for taking the time to look over my question. God Bless.
Is it a mortal sin to have a few drinks (i.e. beer) and then drive even though the person does not feel under the influence of alcohol?
Another question: Is one drink sufficient for someone to be considered under the influence when driving and is it a mortal sin?
I am very confused on what exactly "driving under the influence" means in view of the Church's teaching and what degree of culpability there is for the person that drives.
