Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a major cause of car accidents. Impaired driving is dangerous and exposes the impaired driver and other road users to the risk of being injured or killed in a traffic collision. An impaired driver is likely to cause a crash because the use of alcohol and drugs impairs vision, judgment, and reaction time.
Some common types of collisions caused by DUI suspects include wrong-way collisions, head-on crashes, and speeding accidents.
If a collision involving a DUI suspect results in injury or death, the consequences are severe and may include long jail terms or heavy fines.
