When you live in a big city like Dallas with small congested roads and big rigs driving though, high risks are involved that you need to consider before you get involved in a Dallas car crash. When you decide to get on the road, it is your responsibility to make sure that you are sober. You are putting your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of others on the road around you in jeopardy if you do otherwise. Although this piece of advice may seem obvious, it also prevents other altercations and problems from happening that you may not have considered.
Just this past Friday, a Dallas police officer was attacked by Omar Alexis Ortega during a DWI arrest when he was conducting field sobriety tests. He then fled the scene but was soon captured by two officers that were off-duty. Ortega is now charged with DWI and assault on a public servant.
Oftentimes, after a night of drinking, it’s very tempting to think that you are sober enough to drive home just so that you can get into bed and sleep. However, a lot of problems can arise that would easily make you wish you had just set an hour aside to drink water and sober up, take a cab, or spend the night at a friend’s place. Although the alternatives may not satisfy you at the moment, they are far safer than driving after a night of drinking. Ortega’s case was easily preventable if only he had thought about the results and his alternatives.
