Question: I carpool from Encino to Los Angeles Airport. Driver is always drinking. If he gets DUI with me in car, what happens to me?

Answer: First, for your own safety reasons, I would advise that you do not drive with him. It also sounds like the driver may have a drinking problem that should be addressed before he gets himself in serious trouble, or worse, causes property damage and injury to himself or others. I have personally not seen a passenger having any charges brought against them simply because the driver was arrested for a DUI.
