Taxi Vouchers to Prevent DUI Deaths

In a merry month like December, parties are everywhere. People tend to drink alcohol beyond their limits. No wonder drunk driving incidents register at its highest in this month.

For people whose loved ones had been killed in drunk driving, giving taxi vouchers is their way of keeping drunk drivers off the streets.

Lev Foundation has been giving free $10 taxi vouchers to convince tipsy drivers to take the taxi instead of driving.

The foundation was established by the family and friends of Daniel Levian who was killed by a drunk driver.

In California, the Office of Traffic Safety and the California Highway Patrol are getting ready for the holidays. In fact, motorists are reminded of their plans these holidays hoping they would include as part of merry-making activities the wearing of seatbelts when driving and having a designated driver.

Victims of drunk driving may file a personal injury claim against a negligent motorist who caused the accident. An injured victim may hire a car accident lawyer to help him/her pursue compensation claims against a drunk driver.
