DUI accidents can happen any time of the year, but summer months often see an increase
of intoxicated drivers on the road. Auto accidents increase every summer
as more people take to the roads for trips and activities, but DUI arrests
and accidents account for many of these. Many people attend or host parties
where alcohol is served, and even a few drinks can be enough to cause
impairment. Drunk drivers may not realize the danger they posed to others
on the road until it’s too late.
Safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you are planning a gathering
or are planning to attend one, you can help keep yourself and others safe
by observing some safe driving habits. Stop DUIs this summer with these tips:
Have a designated driver. Plan ahead of time who will be responsible for taking you home.
Use a ridesharing service. If you don’t have a designated driver, services such as Uber or
Lyft can get you home safely.
Stay the night. If you aren’t able to drive home, you may make plans to spend the
night where you are before heading home in the morning.
Drink responsibly. Know your limits, and allow yourself plenty of time to sober up. Slow your
consumption of alcohol with food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Unfortunately, not all drivers will take proper care to prevent DUI accidents.
If you’ve been injured in an accident with a drunk driver, you might
be able to file a claim for compensation. Your injuries and recovery can
be costly, and you should receive damages to cover those expenses.
