The Dangers of Drunk Driving
Intoxicated driving is becoming one of the leading causes of deadly vehicle accidents. Frustratingly, millions of people choose to drive after consuming alcohol over the legal limit, including bus drivers. Even though alcohol can make a person feel as if they are fully capable to drive, it can actually severely impact a person’s driving abilities. When the blood alcohol content, or BAC, exceeds the legal limit, a driver can experience the following impairments:
- Delayed reaction time
- Blurry vision
- Lack of coordination
- Poor decision-making
A bus is difficult to control under any circumstances. However, driving a bus under the influence of alcohol is especially dangerous and potentially deadly.
A bus accident injury can be accompanied by expensive medical bills in addition to pain and suffering. If you or your loved one has been injured in a drunk driving bus accident, contact the Des Moines drunk driving lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 225-2600 today.
