Driving under the influence is a serious concern

(IMAGE: www.michiganautolaw.com)

During the festive season, I kept up with many of the social media platforms and was shocked to read about the number of accident-related deaths and injuries people were plagued with.

A person living in the same neighbourhood as me was severely injured in an accident and the driver of the other vehicle which smashed into him was found to be drunk.

Police had set up numerous road blocks at various points in order to deter drivers from drinking and driving, however, this seemed to prove futile as certain people leak information and drivers who have been drinking avoid the road block areas and find an alternative route to their destination.

My main concern is the number of deaths and the number of lives affected by one person’s negligence. I hope that something effective can be done to stop these selfish drivers from raising the death toll whenever they drive drunk.
