Avoiding a crash with a drunk driver

It's understandable for motorists to be worried about encountering drunk drivers on the roads in California. After all, drunk driving is a significant threat to public safety. There are certain tips that can help people identify drunk drivers who pose a threat on the roads. For starters, it's wise to keep an eye out for signs that a driver may be drunk behind the wheel. While most of these symptoms are not exclusive to drunk people, they almost always point to negligent, dangerous driving.

Drunk drivers are particularly prone to near misses in regard to other cars, people or objects. They may zigzag in and out of their lanes, drive in the wrong direction, abruptly stop or turn, drive too slowly or too quickly, drift in a strange angle or fail to respond to changing traffic lights. In some cases, other drivers may even see someone consuming alcohol while operating the vehicle. When people spot an erratic, dangerous driver like this, car accident prevention should be a top priority. Others should steer clear of this car, including pulling over and allowing the drunk driver to pass by. They should also be ready to act quickly in case of an emergency.

Other drivers or passengers can call the police to report a suspected drunk driver on the road. While it is important to give complete, accurate information about the car, other drivers should not attempt to stop the vehicle or chase the intoxicated motorist.

Drunk drivers can cause serious collisions that result in catastrophic injuries and lifelong disabilities. A personal injury lawyer could help a victim injured by an intoxicated driver obtain compensation for their damages.
