Steps to take if you come across a possible drunk driver

Drunk drivers are all over Georgia. You might see one on a back road, a highway or even in a parking lot. It's not hard to pinpoint a driver who might be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They will likely swerve, speed, slam on the brakes, tailgate, fall asleep at the wheel and more. Here are the steps to take if you come across a possible drunk driver in Cumming, Georgia.

The first thing you should do is safely maneuver your vehicle away from the suspected drunk driver's vehicle but not too far away that you cannot grab identifying information.

Try to get a description of the vehicle, the license plate number, the make, model and anything else that can help the police find the vehicle. Pull to a safe spot off the road and call 911. Make sure you give the last known location of the suspected drunk driver.

If you can safely follow the vehicle, without giving it away, you should do so to help officers find it. Do not try to get the vehicle to pull over and do not interact with the driver. This could lead to a road rage incident.

It's also important to note that you should not make a call to 911 unless you are using a hands-free device, such as a voice activated system in the car.

Drunk driving is a real and present danger that will not go away so long as people continue to make poor decisions. Make sure you follow the steps outlined in today's post so you can properly report a suspected drunk driver.
