How to Spot a Drunk Driver and Prevent a St. Louis Car Crash

Blog Category:
Comments (0)

It’s easy to spot a drunk at a restaurant or in a bar. They’re typically loud, unsteady on their feet and either overly friendly or extra obnoxious. The signs are obvious.

What about if that same driver gets behind the wheel of a car? The signs of a drunk driver in St. Louis are just as obvious, provided you know how to spot them. Here are 15 common signs of potentially drunk drivers in danger of causing a St. Louis car accident:

  1. Driving at night without lights
  2. Driving the wrong way on a one-way road
  3. Driving on the shoulder
  4. Driving directly in the middle of two lanes (on the center line)
  5. Drifting in between lanes
  6. Driving considerably above or below the speed limit
  7. Speeding up or slowing down for no apparent reason
  8. Suddenly swerving to avoid hitting an object
  9. Braking suddenly for no apparent reason
  10. Stopping at a green light
  11. Going through a red light without even slowing down
  12. Tailgating
  13. Getting too close when attempting to pass a car
  14. Signaling a turn but not following through
  15. Taking an extra wide turn


Not every driver exhibiting these dangerous behaviors is drunk, but why take your chances? A drunk driver can be unpredictable so it’s best to steer clear. If you spot a driver you believe may be drunk, slow down or move over to give them plenty of room.

If you have already been the victim of a St. Louis drunk driving accident, then you should talk to a skilled lawyer who can help you recoup damages for your injuries.
