There are four types of drivers on the road including negligent drivers, distracted drivers, drowsy drivers, and drunk drivers. If a driver is negligently driving and swerving in and out of lanes they may be giving less attention to the road, which may result in a car crash or death. Drowsy drivers may have delayed reactions and make bad decisions. These drivers are more likely to make errors.
Drinking and driving has a negative and often catastrophic impact on how a driver drives. An impaired driver may have difficulty concentrating on the road due to consumption of alcohol and drugs affecting their judgment and reaction time. The driver may weave off the road, tailgate and drive on the wrong side of traffic.
These are the following tips to spot a drunk driver.
To continue driving safely, you may want to consider the safety and precautions already in place to protect drivers like you.
- An ignition interlock is a device connected to the vehicle dashboard. A driver breathes into the device. If the blood alcohol content is above the legal limit then the car will simply not move.
- Sobriety checkpoints are a good way to regulate and remove negligent and drivers who are drinking on the road. The Polices use these checkpoints to detect, which drivers are driving under the influence of alcohol.
These strategies and policies have been shown to be effective in avoiding fatal car crashes in adults and teens. If you or a loved one has suffered or died from a car crash due to someone else's negligence then you may wish to seek an experienced attorney who can seek compensation and justice.
