- Stay far away from the suspected drunk driver.
- Do not try to pass the vehicle. Do not try to get the driver’s attention or try to make him pull over.
- When safe to do so, take down all important information about the other vehicle and its driver, including the make, model and color of the vehicle; the license plate number; and any other distinguishing factors.
- Call 9-1-1 as soon as it is safe to do so; do not put yourself in danger.
