While distracted driving is a major cause, reckless driving, which includes drunk driving, can be the cause of a serious and even fatal collisions.

Who can be held liable in a drunk driving accident?

Whether it's after work with friends or colleagues, a celebration or work function, Arizona residents often partake in consuming a few alcoholic beverages. While this is perfectly safe and legal for those of age consuming a safe amount, when it comes to motorists drinking alcohol, there is a concern of drinking and driving. Because it can be difficult to discern how much is too much, some drivers believe that they are still fine to operate a motor vehicle. Such a situation causes some impaired individuals to still get behind the wheel instead of finding another route home. This could result in a serious and even fatal accident.
