The effects of driving while intoxicated are well known to people, specifically drivers. However, many drivers still commit this violation, as seen in the number of DUI arrests made in Orange County last Labor Day weekend.
According to reports, about 262 people were arrested for DUI from Friday to Monday. This number is significantly higher compared to the 187 recorded DUI arrests last holiday weekend in 2010.
Accidents caused by driver intoxication may cause injuries and may claim the lives of innocent people so using drugs or drinking alcohol before driving a vehicle should be strictly avoided.
For more information about DUI and car accidents, it is advisable that you call a skilled Los Angeles personal injury lawyer.
