Crashes caused by a driver who is extremely drunk

Sometimes, drivers are charged with DUI after being pulled over and barely failing a breathalyzer test. Even though a driver may have barely been over the legal limit, they were still violating the law and endangering innocent lives. However, some drivers decide to get behind the wheel when they are extremely intoxicated due to consuming large amounts of alcohol. These drivers are especially dangerous and have caused many fatal accidents over the years. Furthermore, it is important to point out that some states penalize drivers who are "super drunk."

Why drivers do not “see” motorists

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, motorcycle crashes in the state decreased by 7.5 percent between 2017 and 2016. Rather than illustrate a steady decline, however, a look at the department’s reported figures from 2013 to 2017 shows troubling fluctuations in not just the number of crashes involving motorcycles, but also the number of fatal injury crashes involving a motorcycle. At the time of compiling this article, the Pennsylvania D.O.T. had not yet published the statistics for 2018.

How many job-related traffic crashes involve alcohol?

People are involved in various types of accidents while working, such as those which involve the use of dangerous equipment. However, motor vehicle collisions are especially concerning, and these accidents happen for all sorts of reasons, from inexperience to working too many hours and falling asleep on the road. Moreover, some job-related traffic collisions are caused by alcohol consumption, and it is important for employees, employers and everyone on the road to be aware of how prevalent this is.

Steps to take after being hit by a drunk driver

If you are in a car accident in Pennsylvania, it can be a stressful event. When the at-fault party is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is important that you follow certain steps right after the crash occurs. This helps ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
