The threat of drunk driving is on the rise despite strict and restrictive driving laws imposed by every state in the United States. The horrible disasters and consequences of drunk driving have had an irreversible impact on the lives of many innocent people. To contain the increase in accidents and irresponsible driving, it is important that the general public is cooperative and understanding. Police officers are not always available everywhere. Therefore, as a responsible person, it is important to notify police officers that you will encounter traffic violations on the road. This saves the life not only of the driver under the influence, but also of all those who may become victims of a possible disaster. It is important to provide the following information when reporting a driving violation.
- Travel direction
- Name and description of the vehicle in question
- Enrollment details
It is also important to note that you should never attempt to stop or interfere with a driver who is said to be influenced or disabled.
