PERSONAL INJURY - DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENTS
Colorado has laws against drinking to an excess and driving because drunk drivers kill more than 17,000 people and injure more than 500,000 people across the country. Drunk drivers often drive recklessly, have problems estimating distances, react more slowly, and take unnecessary and unsafe chances.
Drunk drivers run red lights and stop signs, drive in the wrong lanes, and often exercise poor judgement resulting in crashes with catastrophic injuries or death.
Call the police and let the 911 operator, the paramedics, and the responding police officer know if the other driver smells like alcohol, or if you suspect alcohol or drugs are involved.
Colorado law makes it illegal for a driver to drive and have a blood alcohol level of .05 or higher (DWAI: Driving While Ability Impaired), or above .08 (DUI: Driving Under the Influence). Suspected drunk drivers typically smell of alcohol, and the police will offer roadside maneuvers, and a breath or blood test if there is evidence of alcohol consumption by one of the drivers involved in the crash.
