Do you know how to spot a dangerous drunk driver?

Motor vehicle accidents involving a drunk driver occur far too often in the U.S. This blatant disregard for public safety can endanger anyone who drives in Pennsylvania. Assuming that other motorists will drive responsibly can leave you vulnerable to serious and life-threatening injuries. A better way to avoid alcohol-related accidents is by staying alert and watching for signs of impaired driving.

Impaired drivers typically experience difficulty performing common driving tasks. When you learn how to recognize these errors in others, you will be better equipped to avoid impaired drivers and protect yourself from accidents. A few signs of impaired driving include the following.

  • Accelerating and/or braking erratically
  • Swerving and weaving across the roadway
  • Drifting across lanes and driving in the wrong lane
  • Driving without headlights when it is dark
  • Striking or nearly striking objects such as curbs or signs
  • Driving much slower than the posted speed limit
  • Making sudden stops
  • Turning too widely

If you see another motorist doing one or more of these things, slow down and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle. Consider calling the police to report the other driver. Never attempt to confront or interfere with the motorist, as you could put yourself at greater risk of injury.

Should an accident occur despite your caution, consider holding the other driver legally accountable. to account. This is an effective deterrent against impaired driving, and it gives you an opportunity to seek compensation for your injuries. Pursuing guidance from an attorney can also help you manage any legal issues that may arise in the aftermath of a crash.
