Detecting and Avoiding Drunk Drivers
Denver and Aurora DUI Accident AttorneyThe consumption of alcohol prior to driving can considerably affect an individual’s ability to drive and makes them much more likely to be involved in a car crash. Typically drivers who drive while intoxicated have slower response times, have reduced depth perception, and have impaired judgment. These factors can make a driver not only more likely to cause an accident, but also lethal. If any driver is suspected of driving while intoxicated it is important to avoid them if at all possible.
Avoiding Drunk Denver DriversThe most common signs of a drunk driver include weaving within their lane, repeated swerving where no noticeable obstacles are present and erratic speed fluctuations. If any of these signs are noticed it is important to protect yourself from the potential of being struck by that driver. If you are following this driver, avoid passing them as you may be struck by the car while passing if the driver weaves. The best option is to pull over and let the driver get a considerable lead before reentering the roadway. If an alternate route is available choosing it may also be a safe option.
