A Deadly Choice: Drunk Driving

Drunk driving accidents occur when individuals operate motor vehicles while impaired by alcohol. As every licensed driver knows, alcohol consumption can significantly impair a driver's ability to safely operate a vehicle, leading to a higher risk of accidents, injuries, and fatalities on the road. But every day, drunk drivers choose to get behind the wheel, leaving catastrophic consequences in their wake.

Common signs of drunk driving include:

  • Swerving or erratic lane changes
  • Driving at inconsistent speeds
  • Tailgating or following too closely
  • Ignoring traffic signs or signals
  • Delayed reactions to traffic signals or hazards
