Dealing with dangerous or drunk drivers on the road

People in West Virginia face serious threats from drunk drivers on the roads. Drunk driving is implicated in thousands of serious car accidents each year, including many fatal crashes. As a result, people may be very concerned about how they can spot drunk drivers and avoid them on the road. There are a number of signs that can indicate that someone is intoxicated behind the wheel. For example, sometimes people can even see a driver imbibing alcohol behind the wheel. There are other telltale signs in the way a driver operates the car. For example, a drunk driver may swerve in and out of a lane, stop at random times, fail to respond to traffic signal changes or even drive down the road in the wrong direction.

All of these are signs of drunk driving, but they are also indications of extremely dangerous driving. It may be a good idea to pull over when such a driver comes in view in order to allow them to get ahead. Slowing down and pulling over may avoid a much more serious car accident. In other cases, people may see such a car coming towards them while going in the wrong direction. Fast responses are critical in such a situation, while flashing lights and honking may help alert the drunk driver.

When people encounter a dangerous or intoxicated driver on the roads, they can call 911 and provide a description of the car and driver. Drunk drivers are a threat to public health and safety on the roads and can cause severe injuries and even fatalities.

Drunk driving is a significant cause of catastrophic auto accidents and the serious injuries that follow. A personal injury lawyer could help people injured by a drunk driver to pursue compensation for their damages, including lost wages and medical bills.
