Days with Increased Drunk Driver Risks
Most people are aware of the risks associated with drinking and driving. Alcohol slows reaction times, diminishes a driver’s ability to assess risk, and can lead to aggressive or reckless driving behaviors. A person who makes the choice to drink and drive puts everyone one the road at risk. On certain holidays and during certain festivities, more people than normal tend to convince themselves that they are “okay to drive” after drinking.
If you or someone you love has been in a car accident caused by someone under the influence of alcohol, you could be eligible for financial compensation for medical expenses and emotional trauma.
