Georgia DUI Injury Attorney: Stay Safe This Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day often is the holiday associated with the beginning of summer. For many people, Memorial Day is celebrated with family and friends by taking a vacation or throwing a backyard BBQ. This frequently provides an opportunity for an increase in alcohol consumption, which can lead to drinking and driving in the state of Georgia.

Because of this, Georgia law enforcement steps up their efforts from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend to crack down on drunk driving and reduce the number of impaired accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

As a Georgia DUI injury attorney, all too often I see the injuries Atlanta DUI victims suffer because someone had one too many drinks and got behind the wheel of their car while intoxicated. We also have seen many loved ones left with the emotional, physical, and financial stress of losing a family member to a preventable accident.

This Memorial Day, we encourage you to drink responsibly, designate a sober driver, and be safe and smart on Georgia roads. All it takes is one poor decision to cause someone a disabling injury or leave a family mourning the loss of their loved one.

Instead of turning this holiday into a drunk driving disaster, decide not to drink and drive and enjoy your time with your family and friends off the road.

If you are injured in an Atlanta drunk driving accident this coming Memorial Day holiday weekend, you should hold the negligent driver responsible for his or her reckless form of misconduct.
