A. You can take your lives, and even worse, the lives of innocent other people. Driving (or performing any other activity that requires precision and alertness) under the influence of alcohol is dangerous because alcohol acts as a "downer" - it slows the overall brain activity, and makes the drinker to think less clearly, acts slowly, and remove it's inhibition so he or she may make reckless decisions (such as not stopping at traffic lights).

The exact mechanism isn't totally understood, but alcohol acts in a diffuse pattern over many regions of the brain. One doesn't have to be totally drunk in order to be ineligible to drive - relatively small amounts of alcohol may already influence enough to make driving extremely dangerous.
