Driving in New York can be quite challenging, especially if you happen to travel through the busier, traffic-laden areas of the state. You never know when someone's going to cut you off, follow too closely or otherwise place you at risk for injury through unsafe driving maneuvers. Drunk drivers are among the most dangerous types of motorists on New York highways and all roadways throughout the nation.
The problem is that you can't always tell when a drunk driver is nearby. In fact, data shows there are so many intoxicated drivers on the road, it's more logical to wonder where they are, rather than if they are there at all. There are certain types of behind-the-wheel behaviors that are common among drunk drivers. If you know how to recognize the signs and have a support network in place, you can quickly access help if a problem arises.
