How to spot a drunk driver before a crash

You know that drinking and driving get worse at night and on the weekends. You also know it's a serious threat during the holiday season. Unfortunately, you can't help but drive during this time, so you decide you're going to be vigilant and look for drunk drivers, hoping you can spot them before an accident happens.

Victims of drunk driving crashes should demand compensation

As the holiday season approaches, people will be heading out to parties to celebrate. Many of these are going to include adult beverages. This means that anyone on the road has to be aware that drunk drivers might be near them. Unfortunately, even the safest driver might fall victim to a drunk driver's negligence.

Civil claims are possible after drunk driving accidents

Drunk driving crashes are serious matters because they are preventable in all circumstances. With all of the public service announcements on the matter, there really isn't ever an excuse. If you are struck by a drunk driver, you might decide that having them go through the criminal justice process isn't enough. You might opt to seek compensation through the civil court system.

Too many people die at the hands of drunk drivers

Far too many innocent people die in drunk driving crashes each day. In this country, there are nearly 29 people who die daily due to intoxicated drivers. While the number of fatalities has been decreasing over the last 30 years, the rate is still too high.

Drunk driving wrecks can be painful and infuriating

Being involved in a car crash is a horrible experience. When you find out that the accident could have been prevented if the other driver had just avoided driving after drinking, you might feel furious. All of your pain and suffering was because someone else made a decision that they shouldn't have.

Not all impairment is due to alcohol

When another driver strikes your vehicle, one of the first things that you might wonder is whether that person was impaired or sober. One thing to remember in these cases is that you can't assume that a person isn't impaired if you don't smell alcohol. It is possible that a person is too intoxicated to drive due to something other than drugs. Car wrecks caused by impairment are often tragic.

DUI accidents are probable cause all on their own

You have likely heard that police officers need to have probable cause before they can stop a drunk driver. In essence, they need a reason to make that stop, to start an investigation, to detain the driver and to begin checking to see if the driver is intoxicated.

Drunk driving accidents can lead to compensation claims

One of the questions that is likely to come up when a person is involved in a car crash is whether the person who caused the accident was intoxicated. This won't have an impact on the outcome of the accident, it can have a big impact on a claim for compensation. We understand that you might already feel overwhelmed by the situation. You might not think that you can handle anything else right now. This is where we come in.

Don't fall victim to drunk drivers this weekend

Drunk drivers can kill. With the big game this weekend, everyone will need to pay more attention to the actions of other drivers to ensure that they aren't falling victim to drunk drivers. There isn't any way that police officers can keep every drunk driver off the roads, so you must try to do your part to keep yourself safe.
