Drinking and driving don’t go well together. So, do not drink if you are going to drive.
Also, always make it a point to check your vehicle before you leave.
Start by inspecting your vehicle’s headlights and turn signals. Be sure that both front and rear headlamps are working properly and visible enough a couple of yards away.
Also, take a reading of your tire pressure and make sure you maintain the recommended maximum. While at it, take a peek under your vehicle and ensure there are no loose objects or leaks.
You should always stay focused while on the road. Remove all distractions that could cause accidents such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
But most importantly, never drink and drive.
DUI is Dangerous
A personal injury occurs when a person suffers any kind of physical, emotional, or psychological injury. The term “personal injury” covers a wide range of cases that occur from car accidents just like the DUI crash on Malloy Road, assaults, slip and fall accidents, injuries from defective products or machinery, and some more cases.
When the involved individual/ suspect failed to meet their duty of care, unexpected and unnecessary personal injuries can take place.
Damages from a personal injury lawsuit range from emotional trauma, physical and mental disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, bodily injuries, and a range of financial losses.
