Staying away from drunk drivers

Drunk drivers may cause accidents that result in a person being significantly hurt or killed. Those who are on Nevada roads or others in the country can take steps to protect themselves against those who drive while impaired. There are many signs that a driver is impaired such as not maintaining a lane or making wide turns. Other signs may include close calls with other vehicles or objects on the road.

A drunk motorist could also brake frequently or at inappropriate times. His or her vehicle's speed may be too fast or too slow for road conditions, and that person may have trouble processing information in a timely manner. Those who encounter a potentially drunk driver should call 911 for assistance. They should not take any action such as disobeying a traffic signal that could put themselves or others in jeopardy.

It is also not a good idea to follow a vehicle too closely or make any attempt to detain the driver. Individuals may be able to reduce their risk of sharing a road with a drunk driver by staying home on Friday or Saturday nights. Avoiding rural roads in favor of highways with four lanes could also help a person keep his or her distance from a drunk or impaired motorist.

A car accident or any other life event could occur with little or no warning. However, a living trust might help a person prepare for what may happen if he or she were killed or became incapacitated suddenly. An attorney may be able to help an individual create an estate plan that accounts for as many potential life events as possible. Any person who is 18 or older might benefit from creating an estate plan regardless of how much money that individual may have.
