Drunk Driving Behaviors

National marketing campaigns and police initiatives have tried to end drunk driving in the U.S., but it still remains a huge problem and the cause of car accident injuries across the country. Sadly, thousands of drunk drivers get on U.S. roads annually, committing dangerous driving behaviors that result in the undue harm and suffering of other innocent parties.

Dangerous Drunk Driving Actions

People react differently to the influence of alcohol and other controlled substances, so it can be hard to predict exactly how individual drivers will behave. However, drunk drivers tend to react in very similar ways, demonstrating the following behaviors:

  • Swerving between lanes
  • Coasting through red lights and stop signs
  • Veering into oncoming traffic
  • Excessive speeding
  • Overly aggressive driving
  • Sudden stops and starts

All of these behaviors are extremely unsafe and could involve innocent people in devastating car accidents. Unfortunately, the injuries that people sustain in drunk driving accidents are often quite serious, causing them to sustain debilitating and often long-lasting injuries. Additionally, such accidents and the resulting injuries can cause a victim to accrue hefty financial burdens.
