Everyone’s Chase for DUI Drivers

Another DUI driving chase happened last week in Los Angeles that resulted to severe injury of a victim. The police authority has run after a driver of an SUV who was allegedly under the influence of drugs and alcohol. However, the two-minute trail ended up in a collision after the suspect beat the red light. Full story can be found at
The increase in number of these roadway incidents is very much alarming. More and more people have been seriously injured or even died due to these illicit acts done by whom they call as “substance addicts.” The statistics illustrate that two individuals die every hour because of a DUI driving in Los Angeles and 51% percent of these occur on weekends.
Meanwhile, I must say that the government should strictly implement the laws on DUI driving to deter or at least lessen the amount of damages and number of casualties it brings. Better yet, the Congress should make a deeper look on laws that affect this issue and ratify stricter punishments for those who will defy these law statutes.
For the poor victims, I do recommend that you consult your Los Angeles Vehicle accident lawyer and ask how you may be able to recover compensation for your incurred injuries. File your charges against the wrongdoer and do not let him get away from his offense. Many times, such moves serve as a deterrent to many wrongdoing and law violations.
Finally, for the liquor drinkers around, be more responsible. Do allow alcohol to control your system. Think of the harms that you may cause if you still drive under the influence of liquor or drugs. Maybe, it is better to rest a bit before going home after a night out or yet, ask anyone who still has the capacity to drive you home if you think you cannot.
