Texas Drunk Drivers — Know the Facts
Austin, Live Music Capital of the World, runs rampant with nightlife seven nights a week. The city’s lively club scene may contribute to the number of drunk drivers on the road.
Further tarnishing our great state, Texas:
• Has a whopping 18,000 five-time repeat offender drunk drivers
• Has had over 6,000 drunk driving fatalities in the past five years alone
• Ranks 49th worst in the nation for drunk driving
What if a repeat offender injured you or killed someone you love? Seem impossible to add salt to the wound? Here’s another somber thought: These are only the documented cases.
What to Do After a Drunk Driving Accident
Your physical health and emotional wellbeing are priorities, however, time is critical when taking legal action in a drunk driving matter. Start with what can be done at home.
- Preserve documentation from the accident
— witness names, contact information and statements
— notes (weather conditions, time of day, etc.)
Do this while your mind is sharp on the facts. Write notes in a notebook and keep in a secure place.
