How to Spot a Drunk Driver

Posted by attorney Andrew Kim

When we get behind the wheel, we can be certain that we are sober and safe to drive. But there is no way to know if the other drivers we are sharing the road with have the same certainty. It is important to be alert of other drivers' behavior to protect you and your passengers from being hit by a drunk driver. MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) have a list of some things to look for to avoid other drivers who appear to be intoxicated: -Quick changes of speed (acceleration or deceleration) -Failure to maintain proper following distance -Weaving across the roadway, almost hitting curbs or other cars -Irregular braking patters -Drifting between the center line and side lane -Incorrect signaling -Sudden stops or delayed starts -Straddling lanes -Swerving -Driving significantly below the speed limit -Irregular turning (too quickly or illegally)
