How are authorities fighting against DUI car accidents?

Drunk driving remains a problem in North Carolina, as well as every other state. Despite the risk of serious consequences, many people continue to get behind the wheel after having too much to drink.

Authorities throughout the country are taking on the problem of drunk driving, looking for ways to reduce the number of incidents. By doing so, the number of motor vehicle accidents, many of which cause injury or death, will also decrease.

There is no surefire way to put an absolute end to drunk driving, which is what makes it such a big problem on a nationwide scale. Even so, there are actions being taken, including but not limited to:

-- Increase in DUI checkpoints.

-- Automatic license revocation, which many believe is the most effective way to reduce instances of drunk driving.

-- Requiring the installation of an interlock device, ensuring that the person does not get drunk and drive again, at least not in his or her own vehicle.

-- Vehicle immobilization or impoundment.

-- Mandatory jail sentence.

Along with the above, the expansion of alcohol server training problems may be able to assist in cutting off the problem at the source.

A motor vehicle accident can happen at any time. The risk of an accident increases if a drunk driver is on the road.

Individual drivers can do their part in staying safe by never drinking and driving. The only problem with this is that others may not necessarily be doing the same. If people are injured by a drunk driver, they may seek legal assistance after receiving the appropriate medical care.
