DUI/Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol: One of the Major Causes of Road Accidents?

You may very well be familiar with a driving reminder which is, “If you drink, do not drive. If you drive do not drink”. Why do you think this was coined? While there are many causes of road accidents, a lot of these are caused by, you guessed it right, driving under the influence of alcohol or even prohibited drugs. This is why DUI violations and charges have its own category in traffic violations. And many institutions such as us at Traffic Ticket Office are willing to help you out with this problem. For any DUI call 305-LAW-Firm.

A lot of people are getting involved in road accidents which may or may not cause death to other people as well as the driver himself. For instance, a teenager has been accused of drinking, driving, crashing and killing another teenager. Nisa Sanchez, 18, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter. Detectives said there was a strong odor of alcohol on Sanchez’s breath. She admitted to going to a graduation party earlier that night and she had left a gas station shortly before the crash, police said. Investigators said Sanchez told them she lost control after making a turn.
