Understanding the Impact of Drunk Driving 

In Texas, drunk driving is defined as operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). One of the ways that OWI is determined is through blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels; it is illegal to drive with a BAC of 0.08% or higher. For commercial drivers, the limit is 0.04%, and for drivers under 21, any detectable amount of alcohol is considered illegal. Drunk driving increases the risk of catastrophic accidents for the following reasons:

  • Impaired Judgment: Alcohol impairs a driver's judgment and decision-making abilities, leading to risky behaviors such as speeding or running red lights.
  • Reduced Coordination: Alcohol affects coordination and balance, making it difficult for drivers to control their vehicles properly.
  • Poor Vision: Alcohol can blur vision and affect depth perception, making it challenging for drivers to see clearly and judge distances accurately.
  • Slowed Reaction Time: Alcohol slows down reaction times, making it harder for drivers to respond quickly to hazards or unexpected situations on the road.
  • Overconfidence: Alcohol can make drivers overconfident in their abilities, leading them to take unnecessary risks while driving.
  • Inattention: Alcohol can cause drivers to become distracted or lose focus, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
  • Fatigue: Alcohol can exacerbate feelings of fatigue, leading to drowsy driving and increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Lack of Awareness: Some drivers may not realize how impaired they are by alcohol and may choose to drive despite being over the legal limit.

Preventing Drunk Driving Accidents

Preventing drunk driving accidents requires a multi-faceted approach involving individuals, law enforcement, and the community. Individuals can play their part by never driving under the influence of alcohol and by encouraging others to do the same. Law enforcement agencies can increase patrols and conduct sobriety checkpoints to catch drunk drivers before they cause harm. Community education and awareness programs can also help reduce the incidence of drunk driving accidents. It is important to always designate a sober driver or use a ride-sharing service to avoid putting yourself and others at risk.

What to Do After a Drunk Driving Accident

  • Seek medical attention immediately.
  • Call the police and report the accident.
  • Gather information from the other driver, including insurance details.
  • Take photos of the accident scene and any visible injuries.
  • Contact Davis Law Group to understand your legal rights and options and seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
