Drunk Driving Dangers
A car accident with a drunk driver can be devastating for victims and their families. Drunk drivers are capable of causing significant injury and damage in a collision because their slower reaction time can cause them to hit another vehicle at full force without braking or swerving to lessen the damage.

Signs of a Drunk Driver
Sometimes drunk driving accidents happen so unexpectedly that there is little that others can do to avoid it. In some cases, however, you may be able to detect a drunk driver before an accident occurs and steer clear of him or her to prevent a collision. The following is a list of common driving behaviors associated with drunk drivers:
- Weaving from lane to lane without signaling
- Driving with the headlights off
- Braking excessively
- Swerving off of the road or into a curb or median
- Crossing the center line into oncoming traffic
If you notice a driver displaying any of these behaviors, stay away from the vehicle in question. Call 911 and report the vehicle with a description and license plate number if possible. Do not try to pass or approach the vehicle, as drunk drivers can behave erratically. Remember: your safety is most important.
If you or a loved one has suffered harm in an accident caused by someone who was driving under the influence of alcohol, you may have legal grounds to pursue a lawsuit to receive compensation for your accident-related costs.
