Statistics show that driving is one of the most dangerous daily activities a person can do. Especially these days in crowded New Jersey cities, getting behind the wheel is definitely a risky endeavor. Drivers today are faced with consistently congested roadways and an abundance of distractions that can take focus off of the road. Distracted and/or reckless drivers coupled with heavily congested roadways is a recipe for a car accident.
Driving while under the influence of alcohol is not only illegal, but very dangerous and reckless. Very strict laws against drunk driving exist in New Jersey and across the country, and rightfully so. Despite these laws, recent statistics say that 28 people die in alcohol related crashes every day in America, and one in every three people will be involved in a car accident with an intoxicated driver in their lifetime.
It is common knowledge that driving and alcohol don't mix. Very stringent laws exist in the state of New Jersey and across the country to help alleviate the problem of drunk driving. Despite these laws, there are drivers that choose to willingly break the law and operate a vehicle while intoxicated. Those that get behind the wheel while intoxicated not only endanger themselves, but they endanger the lives of all those around them. When alcohol is involved, the odds for a car accident increase dramatically.
Despite increased education and public awareness campaigns, driving under the influence of alcohol continues to be a problem across the state of New Jersey. Driving is a task that requires constant focus and attention. However, when alcohol is introduced, even very basic tasks become difficult, and driving becomes extremely dangerous. According to statistics, two out of three people will be involved in a drunk driving accident in their lifetime. A recent car accident involving an alleged drunk driver left a woman and two children with injuries.
Accidents seem to be happening more and more due to the increased volume of traffic on roadways these days. Unfortunately, thousands of people are involved in automobile accidents each year. Navigating crowded roadways can be one of the most dangerous tasks in the daily lives of New Jersey citizens. Even minor accidents like fender benders can cause unwanted stress to those affected. Car accidents can be very traumatic experiences, but when alcohol is involved, the stress and trauma of the experience are magnified.
