During the month of August, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) promotes their “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. During August and continuing till Labor Day, police join the campaign by promoting the issue of drunk driving and how dangerous it is. Police set up extra stops to check for drunk drivers and are even more on alert than they usually are.
Our Chattanooga car accident attorney has seen far too many examples of a person injured because they were hit by a drunk driver and we hope to join in this campaign to raise awareness about such an important topic.
Driving under the influence increases your chances of speeding, ignoring traffic signals and signage, and increases your chances of accidents and even death. We hope that you heed this warning from the NHTSA and choose to drive sober, have a designated driver, or take public transportation if you’ve been drinking. It’s never worth the risk!
