Driving Safety Tips
Report drunk or unsafe drivers immediately but safely. Law enforcement in the State of Alaska take this very seriously. Call 911 if you feel someone should not be behind the wheel (but not while you are driving.) Even if you are unsure, it is better to be safe than sorry. You could prevent a serious accident from happening down the road.
Accidents caused by drunk drivers or those who are under the influence of alcohol or other drugs can be devastating. Sadly, accidents such as this one happen more often than they should. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident where alcohol or drugs were a factor, contact the personal injury attorneys at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. to help you get the compensation you deserve.
- Proofread sentences “Accidents caused by drunk driver or those who are under the influence” should either be “caused by drunk drivers” or “caused by a drunk driver”
