Driving around a college town can be difficult no matter what. Busses are always too big for the lanes, freshman have no idea where they’re going and students are constantly walking wherever they please. Staying alert is the best way to be a safe driver, but sometimes, no matter how good of a driver you are, other drivers can be spontaneous and out of control.
Unfortunately, drunk driving is a common habit in college towns. Parties are around every corner, especially in a place like San Marcosthat have a very small amount of taxi’s and driving services. Knowing how to spot a drunk driver will keep you and your passengerssafe on the road.
Here’s a few sure signs of an intoxicated driver.
- Quick acceleration and brakes
- Weaving in and out of lanes to dodge traffic
- Drifting into other lanes and swerving back
- Driving extremely slow or fast
If you see someone driving recklessly, call 9-1-1 immediately to report the danger. Not only do you want to save yourself and your community, you also are saving the drunk drivers from potential harm to themselves.
