How To Proceed From DUI a Crash
Moreover, while driving is essential for many to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous daily activities. Thus, it is therefore important to know how to proceed in case you are involved in an accident.
Indeed, on the AAA Foundation website, chief executive officer Peter Kissinger repeatedly labeled the epidemic of motor vehicle-related accidents a “public health crisis.”
