Identifying the signs of a drunk driver

Drunk drivers take the lives of many innocent people in Texas and across the United States every year. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, there are more drunk driving fatalities in Texas than in any other state in the nation. In 2015, 290,000 people were injured and 10,265 people were killed in drunk driving accidents. At The Martin Law Firm, we understand that drunk drivers endanger the safety and the lives of everyone on the road. By being able to spot the signs of an intoxicated motorist, you may be able to save your life, or the life of someone else.

If and when you see other motorists engaging in reckless driving behavior, you should call law enforcement as soon as possible. The signs of a drunk driver include, but are not limited to the following:

  •          Drifting in and out of lanes without signaling or giving any prior warning.
  •          Riding on the tails of other vehicles.
  •          Quickly accelerating and then decelerating.
  •          Swerving between cars.
  •          Driving at speeds that are less than 10 miles below the speed limit.
  •          Driving between two lanes of traffic.

In addition to these behaviors, intoxicated motorists may forget to turn on their lights when driving at night or brake erratically. It is vitally important to steer clear of motorists who are driving in a dangerous manner, as they may be intoxicated or on drugs that could affect their judgement and their ability to operate a vehicle.
