Mock accident to warn teens of dangers of drunk driving

Students watched quietly as firefighters freed victims from a car mangled in a drunk driving accident in Ohio and either rush them to trauma centers or cover them with a sheet on the ground. Even though this was a reenactment of a drunk driving accident, students were warned that it could very likely turn into reality if they drove while intoxicated or distracted.

Ohio accident victim's family pleads for stronger sentence

Car accidents can be caused by a variety of reasons, but when the car accident could have been prevented, it is even more difficult for victims and their family members to come to terms with their grief. A drunk driving accident is just that - a preventable accident if only the drunk driver had not gotten behind the wheel intoxicated. One way to come to terms with the grief loved ones are going through is for the drunk driver to be held accountable.

Proving negligence in an accident

Victims of a car accident in Ohio or their loved ones may have heard the term "negligence" thrown about with respect to their crash. While individuals may understand that negligence has something to do with holding the other party responsible, they may not fully grasp what the legal term means. Negligence is a legal term that refers to any careless behavior that either causes or contributes to an accident. If a car accident occurs because someone failed to stop at a red light, then that person was probably negligent for violating a traffic law and causing the accident.

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.

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.

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.

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.
