Orlando car accident attorney Carolyn Salzmann of Legally Pink Law, PLLC is reminding Central Florida drivers of the nation’s top three causes of accidents. The number three cause of accidents likely won’t surprise you. Drunk driving has long plagued motorists and pedestrians alike, and it remains a leading cause of automobile accident death and injury.
MADD – Mothers Against Drunk Driving – estimates that 300,000 incidents of drunk driving occur daily. To curb drive driving, always have a designated driver assigned when you’ll be drinking alcohol. Have the nerve to take a friend’s keys if they’re too intoxicated to drive home, and always carry fare for a taxi.
Drunk driving has been known to kill both the intoxicated driver as well as innocent victims driving nearby. Drunk driving must be taken seriously and you can be a part of the solution. If you were in a car accident with alcohol involved, contact your Orlando car accident attorney today.
