How to Spot a Drunk Driver

Quite often, drunk drivers get on the roads endangering people. It’s important to be aware of how people are driving on the road as this may help to spot a drunk driver. As soon as you see an erratic driver who you feel may be drunk, increase your distance and stay as far away from the vehicle as possible. Never try to pass the vehicle because at any time the drunk driver might swerve into your lane causing a collision. Take note of the license plate as well as the vehicle’s make, model and color; then pull over and call 911. Be sure to give the 911 operator the exact location of the vehicle, including the name of the roadway and the direction that the vehicle is traveling. Describe of the vehicle to the 911 operator and explain how the person was driving. For example, swerving in and out of traffic lanes, driving in the center of both lanes, driving on the wrong side of the road or on the shoulder, erratic braking, tailgating, and/or hitting an object, curb, or vehicle.

It is imperative to be observant on the road and keep an eye out for drunk drivers. By doing so, you can help protect your family and other families from drunk driving car accidents.
