The Labor Day holiday is coming quickly, and that means greater police presence throughout the Atlanta Metro Area. An increase in alcohol use is common around the holidays. As the unofficial end of summer approaches, police will be on the lookout for people driving drunk.
Officials have warned about the increased police presence, and have asked drinkers to call a cab or use a designated driver. Last year, there were 15 deaths and over 1,200 injuries due to crashes in Georgia. This is down from previous years.
If you are driving and you see someone using their vehicle recklessly, call the police. You could be saving a life. Drunken drivers cannot react correctly on the road. Their judgment and reaction times are impaired. This can lead to a severe accident.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, there are ways that you can receive help through insurance or through state programs, but sometimes these are not enough. If you need more compensation to cover what has happened to you, that’s when you need the strong arm on your side.
