Do you know how to pinpoint a drunk driver?

Just because you are sober when behind the wheel doesn't mean that every other driver is the same way. There are people out there who have had too much to drink, thus making it dangerous for them to operate a motor vehicle.

Here are some of the many signs that a person is driving drunk:

  • Tailgating
  • Swerving into and out of traffic
  • Floating from lane to lane
  • Driving too fast or too slow
  • Almost striking an object, such as a road sign or parked vehicle
  • Straddling the center lane marker
  • Signaling that is inconsistent with the moves they make
  • Stopping for no reason
  • Driving the wrong way on a one way street
  • Driving in an area that is not for vehicles, such as a sidewalk or bike lane

While it's good to know how to spot a drunk driver, you still need to know what to do next.

The first thing you should do is keep your distance, as this can help you avoid being part of an accident. From there, consider calling the police so they can pull the person over and see what is going on.

If you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, you should move your car to safety and wait for a police officer to arrive on the scene. Also, don't hesitate to call for an ambulance if you are injured.

Driving under the influence of alcohol is extremely dangerous. If a drunk driver injured you, you may be able to hold the person responsible for his or her actions by seeking compensation for your injuries and other damages.
