Alcohol and/or drugs are a factor in 38% of all deadly car crashes and 7% of all auto accidents. In 2008, there were 13,080 people arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). Kansas’s drunken driving accidents totaled 2,801 in 2010. That same year, there were 138 people killed as a result of drunk drivers.
DUIs, formerly known as DWIs, can apply to those under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication, illicit drugs, and even over-the-counter medication. Individuals who were injured in alcohol-related crashes should speak with a car accident lawyer about recovering compensation for their injuries. Other types of traffic collisions involved in auto accident cases include rollover accidents, head-on collisions, side-impact collisions, rear-end collisions, high-speed collisions, and lane changing accidents.
The behavior exhibited by drunk drivers sometimes include:
• Speeding • Driving too slow
• Reckless driving
• Inability to react • Failure to obey traffic signs
• Falling asleep at the wheel
• Failure to utilize turn signals
• Aggressive driving
