Spotting a drunk driver can help keep you safe

Even if you understand that driving under the influence of alcohol is a horrible mistake, it doesn't mean that other drivers take the same stance. Instead, despite the laws in place, they continue to drink and drive.

The ability to spot a drunk driver who's sharing the road with you can help keep you safe. Here are some of the key signs that someone may be under the influence:

  • Driving the wrong way on a one-way street
  • Neglecting to use headlights when driving at night
  • Making an illegal turn
  • Inability to stay in their lane of travel
  • A long pause before pulling away from a traffic signal
  • Striking other objects, such as signs or cars
  • Driving slower or faster than the posted speed limit
  • Rapid acceleration
  • Tailgating other vehicles
  • Driving in the middle of the road instead of choosing a lane
  • Drinking alcohol while driving
  • Driving with their face extremely close to the windshield

As you drive, watch for people who are acting in a suspicious manner. It doesn't necessarily mean they are drunk, but it's best to keep your distance. If you see a person who is posing a threat to others, call 911 so police can take immediate action.

In the event of an accident with a drunk driver, make sure police respond to the scene to create a report. This will help you in the future, such as when making an insurance claim and seeking compensation for any damages and injuries.

You do your best to avoid drunk drivers on the road, but doing so is not always possible.
