Contesting drunk driving at the state level

Unfortunately, some people in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, have to suffer through the aftermath of a drunk driving accident. Whether you yourself have been in an accident with a drunk driver or are a family member of a victim, it is never easy dealing with being a party to an accident of this magnitude. Drunk driving accidents seem to be even more heinous in nature than other types of car wrecks because the perpetrators of these accidents choose to put others in harm's way by their actions. It is almost a misnomer to call a drunk driving accident an accident because but for the driver getting behind the wheel of the car drunk, the accident most likely would not have occurred.

Because it is widely recognized that drunk driving collisions are an epidemic, many states are attempting to take steps to put an end to people driving while drunk, hence reducing the number of accidents that occur. There are a number of aggressive measures that state governments have put into place to deal with this very serious problem. Sobriety checkpoints, ignition locks and license revocations are just some of the ways that states like Pennsylvania are combating drunk driving.

Education is also a key piece in battling this problem. Many younger people probably don't truly comprehend the danger of driving while under the influence and the serious injuries that an accident of this nature can cause. Educating new drivers about drunk driving and instilling in them the knowledge of how this can adversely impact others as well as themselves is paramount.

Stricter state punishments for drunk drivers as well as education are two important pieces in trying to put an end to drunk driving.
