Drunk drivers are a major risk on the road. Not only do they put themselves in danger when they choose to drive drunk, but they also put others at risk of serious injury or death, as well. While no one can anticipate when exactly an accident will occur, there are warning signs that drivers can watch for to avoid driving near drunk drivers. Knowing how to detect erratic and potentially dangerous driving behavior could save your life.
Common Drunk Driving Behaviors
There are several signs that can help to alert other drivers of an intoxicated motorist on the road. Some driving behaviors that impaired people often display include:
If you notice a driver behaving erratically, keep a safe distance and do not try to pass the vehicle. A drunk driver may not be aware of your presence and may cause an accident before you can prevent it. If possible, call 9-1-1 and report a description of the vehicle and license plate number, but only if you can get the information without following too closely. A drunk driver may suddenly brake, change speeds, or change direction, causing a serious accident.
