Labor Day and DUI wrecks

| Sep 1, 2017 | Drunk Driving Accidents

There are many different reasons why drunk driving crashes happen, some of which have been addressed on this blog. For example, a teenager may drive drunk because they are unaware of zero tolerance laws or are pressured by some of their peers to engage in risky behavior. However, there are certain times of year, such as Labor Day weekend, when drunk driving may be even more prevalent in New London and cities all over Connecticut. If you plan to celebrate this holiday, or will be driving during Labor Day weekend, it is vital to be aware of the risks of drunk driving.

With summer coming to an end and children returning to school, many people like to have one last celebration before fall officially starts. Sometimes, these celebrations involve the consumption of alcohol at a party with friends or family. Sadly, some people drive after drinking, whether they are not aware that their BAC level has exceeded the legal limit or they think they are capable of getting behind the wheel.

When people make the poor decision to drive drunk, the consequences can be tragic. From lives being cut short to severe injuries, financial loss, and mental trauma, DUI accidents are particularly devastating. If you are hit by a drunk driver, or a driver exhibiting any other type of reckless behavior, you need to do what you can to recover and ensure they answer for their actions.
