The effects of alcohol on driving skills

When it comes to alcohol and driving, most people realize the need to avoid drinking and driving. Even if you have never been cited for a DUI or DWI, you likely know someone whose life has been affected by a drunk driver. Unfortunately, this knowledge is often forgotten in the moment of deciding whether or not to drive after drinking, especially if it was only a small amount of alcohol. The holidays are a time of celebration, but whether you are toasting to the new year or sharing a seasonal eggnog with an old friend, there are some things about alcohol's effects on drivers that you need to keep in mind during this time of year.

What is vicarious liability in car accidents?

Did you know that someone who wasn't even at the accident scene can, in some cases, be liable for the damages caused in the wreck? This can happen based around on the theory of vicarious liability. It means that the third party could have prevented the accident by not allowing the driver to get behind the wheel, but this wasn't done, and so that third party bears some responsibility for creating a dangerous situation.
