Sobering DUI Stats (Infographic)

Traffic situations are always unpredictable.

Drivers need to give their full attention to be able to make quick decisions. They have to watch the road and other cars while maintaining control of their vehicle. However, alcohol prevents this as it affects the thoughts, actions, and feelings of a person.

Alcohol has adverse effects on the body as soon as you have your first drink. It impairs you ability to concentrate, make sound judgments, and react quickly to situations.

As the amount of alcohol a person consumed increases, the less control they’ll have on their mental and physical processes.

I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
