DUI Accidents in Texas
DUI accidents occur every single weekend in Texas, especially after midnight. Even though intoxicated individuals should not get behind the wheel after leaving a bar, club, or party, they still do because they’re unable to think rationally when too much alcohol is soaked into their bloodstream. Alcohol slows down reaction times, alters perception, and blurs vision. After a while the body starts to shut down, making it easier for drivers to cause a dangerous collision.
