    Avoiding Drink Drivers

    Intoxicated drivers get behind the wheel every day, putting ourselves and our loved ones in danger. To stay out of harm's way, it's important to learn how to spot a drunk driver on the road. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) gives us a checklist for spotting drunk drivers, and being vigilant on the roads. You can help protect your family from drunk drivers by looking for these signs of intoxication among other motorists:

    • Quick acceleration or deceleration
    • Tailgating
    • Weaving or zig-zagging across the road
    • Driving anywhere other than on a road designated for vehicles
    • Almost striking an object, curb, or vehicle
    • Stopping without cause or erratic braking
    • Drifting in and out of traffic lanes
    • Signaling that is inconsistent with driving actions
    • Slow response to traffic signals (e.g. sudden stop or delayed start)
    • Straddling the center lane marker
    • Driving with headlights off at night
    • Swerving
    • Driving slower than 10 mph below the speed limit
    • Turning abruptly or illegally
    • Driving into opposing traffic on the wrong side of the road

    If you see a motorist engaging in any of the above driving habits, stay as far away from the other vehicle as possible. Never try to pass the vehicle or signal the driver to pull over.  Doing so could result in a collision. Try if you can to take notice of the license plate number of the driver along with details of the vehicle including make, model and color. Remember to never compromise your own safety trying to obtain this information. Finally, pull over to call 911. Give the location of the vehicle, including the name of the road or cross streets and the direction the vehicle is traveling, and a complete description of the vehicle and the manner in which the vehicle is being driven.

    Stay aware on the roads, and keep your family safe. Thanks to MADD for the info.
