You need to get the warrants recalled. If you get pulled over by law enforcement you can be arrested and jailed. You need to retain a criminal defense attorney to assist you in your matters in getting the warrants recalled and having the underlying alcohol related matters concluded.

If convicted, expect a monetary fine, possible jail, possible probation and attending classes as to the dangers of drinking and driving.
