Drunk Driving Accidents
Collisions caused by impaired drivers are often called “accidents”, however, there is nothing accidental about them. DUI accidents are completely preventable by drivers, but despite increased awareness, stricter laws and harsher criminal penalties, there are still people who make the choice to get behind the wheel while under the influence. Drinking alcohol decreases the ability to react quickly and impairs vision, hinders the ability to make rational decision as well as hand/eye/foot coordination.
