Any New Haven auto accident attorney can tell you that they have seen their fair share of crashes when alcohol has played a factor into the accident. Driving under the influence of alcohol is against the law in the State of Connecticut and our state has some of the strictest drunk driving laws in the nation.
Even through this, we still have some people that drive under the influence. As we approach the 4th of July holiday, you may see people driving who you suspect are drunk. Here are some tips to spot them.
- Driving too slowly;
- Stopping inappropriately;
- Weaving or zig-zagging across the road;
- Turning too wide;
- Slowly reacting to traffic lights and signals;
- Erratic braking;
- Almost hitting another vehicle or object;
- Sudden or illegal turns.
