Many accidents were expected over Memorial Day weekend

With the long weekend that comes with Memorial Day, many drivers may have found themselves on the road, looking forward to either going away for the weekend or enjoying the extra weekend night. Drivers may have press a little harder on the accelerator to get to their destination faster or gotten behind the wheel after having a little too much alcohol and think they may get away with it. But unfortunately, the National Safety Council estimated that more than 300 drivers would not get away with it, as total traffic fatalities for this month alone are expected to be 3,073 with more than 300 coming from the Memorial Day weekend. Another 46,300 were expected to suffer injuries in an accident during the weekend, traditionally considered the start of the summer.

Alcohol related crashes are perhaps the most devastating car accidents because they could have been avoided if the drunk driver had acted responsibly and not gotten behind the wheel after drinking. Injuries sustained in a car accident can take months if not years to recover from physically and there is no limit on how long it may take the emotional wounds to heal.

Proposed DUI bill faces opposition on road to being passed

Enjoying alcoholic beverages responsibly is an activity in which many adults like to participate. However, it is when poor choices are made regarding alcohol when accidents can happen. These situations are made that much more dangerous when alcohol and automobiles are mixed, sometimes causing tragic drunk driving accidents. Recently, much discussion has been had on possible methods of dealing with these offenders, as a new DUI bill in Ohio is being thoroughly examined and, in some cases, criticized.

Losing someone unexpectedly in an alcohol-related accident leaves an impact on everyone involved. This includes not just the immediate family members of the victim, but also by the victim's friends and all those who associated with them.

A fatal car accident can leave a victim's family emotionally and financially distressed, in addition to wanting answers as to why the accident happened. Family members of the victim may choose to file charges if an investigation reveals negligence, or in a recent Ohio case, drunk driving, contributed to a victim's death.

Life can change unexpectedly in the blink of an eye, and, when these changes happen because of someone else's recklessness, it may be hard for Ohio residents to come to terms with it.

Unfortunately, even though driving is one of the most common behaviors in which people across the country engage daily, it can also be one of the deadliest if drivers do not follow road regulations and pay attention to changing road conditions. Even worse is when people get behind the wheel after they have consumed alcoholic drinks, putting not only their own lives in danger, but also the lives of everyone on the street around them.

Even though driving is one of the most common behaviors people across the country engage in, it is also one of the most dangerous. This is especially true if there are negligent and reckless people on the road. In those circumstances, a tragic car accident can take place, and the loss suffered in such an accident can rarely be quantified.

Buzzed drivers cause many car accidents

In Ohio, the legal blood alcohol content limit is .08 percent. Drivers who have a BAC higher than the legal limit are considered to be operating a vehicle while impaired and can face criminal charges. Operating a vehicle while impaired is very dangerous and continues to cause fatal car accidents in Ohio and throughout the country. 

Drunk driving could lead to serious accidents

The possibility that a car accident will occur is present each and every time someone gets into a car to go somewhere. Residents of Cincinnati are not immune to this. There are many reasons why a motor vehicle accident could occur including driver distraction, medical episodes and issues with the vehicle itself. Sometimes car accidents occur because a driver has consumed too much alcohol before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. In any of these instances the outcome can be catastrophic.
