Alcohol and Fatal Car Accidents
Alcohol is one of the leading causes of fatalities in traffic accidents. While special interest groups have spent a considerable amount of money in recent years educating the public about the dangers of drunk driving, thousands of people continue to die every year because of those who choose to drink and then drive.
A drunk driver is not only putting his or her life at stake, but he or she is endangering the lives of everyone who he or she will come close to while on the road.

When a Drunk Driver is Encountered
As long as individuals continue to recklessly drink and drive, it is up to observant drivers on the road to report this dangerous behavior before an accident occurs. If you are driving and notice that a car near you is swerving in and out of lanes, driving incredibly fast or slow, or slamming the brakes without reason, you should:
- Find out the license plate number
- Remember the make and color of the car
- Call 311 and report the vehicle
Always remember to keep a safe distance from a driver who appears drunk while on the road.
