Be on the look out for drunk drivers this holiday season

The holiday season is just around the corner. From Thanksgiving Thursday through the end of the year, many people will partake in spirits to celebrate the season. Sadly, some of those people will opt to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after they have been consuming alcohol. That poses a danger to the other people who are sharing the roadways with the drunk driver. While you aren't responsible for the behavior of others, keeping a watchful eye out for signs of an intoxicated driver might enable you to avoid an accident.

People who are driving after drinking will often show several signs that are fairly easy to spot. One thing they might do is to weave around the roadways. They might have trouble driving in a straight line in their lane. They might accelerate and decelerate rapidly. In some cases, they might slam on the brakes or rev the engine for no reason at all.

Drunk drivers might drive well below the posted speed limit, oftentimes driving at 10 miles per hour or lower. They might drive with their headlights off or have a delayed reaction to traffic signals. The driver might also act in a manner that isn't consistent with the signals he or she is giving.

Even when you spot a drunk driver and take action to stay away from that vehicle, it is still possible that the drunk driver will cause an accident. If you are injured in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver, you might choose to explore your options for seeking compensation for injuries you suffered.
