Time off work is a great cause for relaxation and family reunions… Or maybe it’s a choice between relaxation OR family reunions? Either way, winter weather isn’t the only thing that may make the roads dangerous this season. Here’s some things to watch for, and what NOT to do when you suspect an impaired driver is sharing the road with you.
Impaired drivers commonly:
What NOT to Do:
As tempting as it may be to pass the vehicle and get as far away as possible, attempting to pass could result in a collision. Do not try to stop the vehicle, follow too closely, detain or confront the driver.
What TO do:
Stay FAR behind. Its much easier to control a situation in front of you than a situation coming from behind. Report suspected impaired drivers by dialing 911. Give the operator the location, direction of travel, description of car (make model color and license plate number) and information on the drivers behavior.
