Seattle Lawyer | How to Spot a Drunk Driver | San Diego Car Accident Attorney

By Ross Jurewitz on September 2, 2010

With 2 million drunk driving accidents every year- 60% of drivers will be involved in a drunk driving accident at some point in their life. Working in our San Diego personal injury law firm as a car accident lawyer‚ I am constantly faced with the heartache of families that have lost loved ones and victims whose lives are torn apart in these horrible accidents.

Over the last twenty years or so there has been a push to stop drunk driving. Groups such as MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) try to end this epidemic through awareness‚ public announcements parade across our television screens and signs commemorating a life lost flood our highways‚ but still drunk driving remains a problem. Strict laws have even been implemented and patrols increased on weekend nights‚ but still 10% of drivers at late hours are intoxicated. In spite of all these efforts drunk drivers still have a significantly greater chance of getting in a car accident while drunk than being arrested with a DUI.

All of these facts are a little depressing and often times people simply give up- deciding to protect themselves and their families by simply avoiding night time driving—there are‚ however‚ ways to keep yourself safer from drunk drivers when you take to the roads by simply paying attention. Knowing all potential signs of intoxicated driving‚ and monitoring drivers on the road for these signs can greatly reduce your chance of falling victim. Seattle auto accident attorney‚ Jason Epstein‚ has written an article with tips to help you spot and keep yourself safe from drunk drivers until an officer can get them off the road. The article‚ Top Ways to Spot a Drunk Driver‚ is available through the preceding link.

There are many legal complications that come with a drunk driving incident and if you have fallen victim to a drunk driver do not hesitate to contact an attorney. You may contact our personal injury law office
