Notice Someone Driving Who Shouldn’t Be? Here’s What To Do
Here’s a short list of what you should do if you notice someone driving, who shouldn’t be
Driving while intoxicated
You may have to deal with a driver who you know is under the influence and making a bad decision to drive. You should step in to prevent them from driving drunk or high.
If the person hasn’t yet taken the wheel, try to persuade them not to. Offer to find them another ride or call a ride-sharing service, enlist the assistance of another friend or family member, or contact your local authorities.
Driving above speeding limits
If you believe a driver is driving too fast, you should express your concerns. If you’re worried about this, you could say something like, “I’m sorry, but I’m not a good passenger.” Could you please slow down a little?” This should not irritate the driver. Alternatively, you could state that you are ill. Few drivers are willing to have their car’s interior ruined! However, if the driver continues to refuse to slow down, you must be direct; after all, you may save both his or her life and your own.
Seniors on the Road
When it comes to age, see if you can persuade your loved ones to have their driving skills reassessed by a nearby driving school.
In summary, If you do decide to follow an impaired driver, make sure you stay safe! Don’t try to pass them or get their attention; you could endanger yourself or others.
Also, regardless of age or impairment, if you or someone you know is suffering from a medical condition that has effects or side effects that put themselves or others on the road in danger, you should consider reporting them.
Be safety and security assured
Think safety first!
