DUI Accidents in California

 
In today’s day and age, there is hardly an excuse for driving under the influence. There are plenty of alternatives, such as using a rideshare app or making a non-drinking friend a designated driver.
 
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s Go Safety campaign wants to spread awareness to the public about the meaning of a DUI. DUIs do not only encompass alcohol. In fact, the use of any drug, whether it be marijuana, prescription, over-the-counter, illegal, or illicit, can constitute a DUI. Drugs impair a driver’s ability to drive safely.
 
In uncertain times such as these, you may want to speak to a professional.
