What To Do if You See a Drunk Driver

Post Date:12/31/2018 9:00 AM
It happens every day.  Drunk drivers get on the roads, endangering our friends and loved ones.  You may have seen a driver weaving in and out of lanes, asleep at a signal light or traveling down a roadway going the wrong direction.  Quite often, responsible citizens are left asking themselves - what should I do?

First, stay as far away from the other vehicle if possible. 

Second, do not try to pass the vehicle or signal the driver to pull over.  Doing so could result in a collision.

Third, take notice of the license plate number along with details of the vehicle including make, model and color. However, make sure you don’t compromise your own safety trying to obtain this information. 

Finally, pull over and call 9-1-1.  Give the exact location of the vehicle, including the name of the road or cross streets and the direction the vehicle is traveling. Give a complete description of the vehicle and the manner in which the vehicle is being driven.

Save a life. Report a drunk driver by calling 9-1-1.
