For decades, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and other public advocacy groups have been trying to educate people about the dangers of impaired driving. While drunk driving death rates have declined dramatically, there is still a persistent risk of drunk driving fatalities and injuries on the road. Part of the problem, unfortunately, is many young people are not taking the lessons to heart on DUI.
When a young person causes a drunk driving accident to occur, passengers who were in the car with the impaired young driver should consult with an Atlanta drunk driving accident attorney. Any other victims, from pedestrians or bikers to those in other cars, should also get legal help. The teen or young adult can be held accountable for causing impaired driving losses, just as older adult drivers can.
