What Should I Do if I Spot a Drunk Driver?

The Dallas car accident attorneys at Hart Law Firm hope that you are never part of a Dallas drunk driving crash. In order to prevent a serious injury or tragedy, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has offered some tips to help you react appropriately if you are ever faced with a drunk driver.
  • 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.

It is scary and dangerous to witness a drunk driver—even if you are out of harm’s way. And remember, just because you have escaped danger doesn’t mean the innocent drivers up ahead are safe. This is why it is so important to notify the authorities if you spot a drunk driver. Only by doing our best to prevent crashes from occurring can we begin to curb drunken driving accidents.
