The Consequences of Drunk Driving
Alcohol is potent. It slows down the body’s cognitive functions as
well as the central nervous system. Depending on the amount of alcohol
that is consumed as well, it can tremendously affect that person’s
ability to focus on the road, reduces reaction time, impacts mental alertness,
and can even blur one’s vision. A single drink has the power to
affect one’s ability to reason and make judgments.
Some of the telltale signs of a drunk driver include:
- Driver has slurred speech
- Driver’s eyes appear glassy or red
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Driving without the car’s headlights on
- Driving too quickly or slowly
- Crossing the center divider or line
In Pennsylvania, it is illegal to drink with a blood-alcohol concentration
(BAC) of 0.08% or more. To hold another driver accountable for driving
under the influence of alcohol, your Philadelphia drunk driving accident
attorney must establish that the driver was intoxicated when he or she
was behind the wheel.
