When someone unintentionally drives drunk

Sometimes, people who get behind the wheel while inebriated do so knowingly, showing no regard for the safety of everyone on the road. That said, there are also times when drivers may unknowingly drive drunk. For example, someone may have thought that they were under the legal limit or they may not have realized that they drank alcohol in a mixed drink at a celebration. Regardless, those who are over the legal limit should be held responsible for their actions, especially if they cause an accident in Pittsburgh or anywhere else in the state of Pennsylvania.

How many fatal DUI crashes occur each year?

Drunk driving may lead to a number of consequences, from innocent people riding in other vehicles suffering injuries to penalties such as license suspension and imprisonment for those driving drunk. Sadly, many of these drivers have claimed the lives of other people by getting behind the wheel after they have been drinking. It is important for people to be aware of just how widespread drunk driving is and the number of lives that are claimed in Pennsylvania and across the whole U.S. as a result of this reckless behavior.

Poor visibility and motorcycle collisions

Motorcyclists face many risks every time they take to the road, but poor visibility is especially concerning. Whether the driver of another vehicle has difficulty seeing a motorcyclist or a motorcyclist is unable to see the road well, riding a motorcycle in these conditions can be dangerous in Pittsburgh and across Pennsylvania. At our law firm, we know how devastating motorcycle collisions can be for motorcyclists and those they love, which is why we believe it is so important to focus on prevention. Sadly, it is already too late for some victims and those who have found themselves in this position because of a negligent driver should know their rights.

The risk of a motorcycle crash during Labor Day

Labor Day weekend brings people together across the country, from family parties to events and other types of gatherings. Unfortunately, it can also bring an increased risk of traffic collisions, and this is especially concerning for motorcyclists. Many people enjoy riding their motorcycle during Labor Day and since this holiday marks the unofficial end of summer, motorcyclists in many areas want to spend some time on their motorcycle before the cooler fall weather sets in. Sadly, accidents occur too often on this holiday, completely putting an end to celebrations.

Do more motorcyclists ride drunk at night?

There are all sorts of motorcycle accident risk factors that motorcyclists and those driving any type of vehicle should be aware of—distractions, bad road conditions, etc. That said, the use of alcohol is especially concerning and has been responsible for many motorcycle accidents over the years. From the loss of life to injuries that permanently shatter a person’s life, drunk driving is a major concern. Whether you ride a motorcycle or have concerns about a loved one who is a motorcyclist, it may be helpful to review statistics on motorcycle wrecks, such as the prevalence of drunk riding at certain times of the day.
