The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that more than one-third of all fatal motor vehicle accidents and hundreds of thousands of crashes resulting in injuries are caused by alcohol. That’s why it’s so important that law enforcement keeps these intoxicated motorists off the roads.

Two such drivers were arrested in Western New York this past weekend in separate incidences. According to WIVB 4 News, the arrests were made moments before innocent victims were injured.

The first incident occurred Saturday morning in West Seneca, New York, when a 52-year-old resident became enraged with another driver on a rural road. He cut her off and struck her car at the corner of Seneca Street and Harlem Road.  Police were called to the scene and determined through field sobriety tests that the man was intoxicated. He’s now facing charges of Failure to Stay in Lane, DWI, and aggravated DWI.

The next day, police were called to the scene of a woman in the middle of Orchard Park Road. When police arrived, they found the 29-year-old Blasdell woman standing in the middle of the street blocking traffic. She failed field sobriety tests and was arrested on charges of DWI.

The New York Car Accident Lawyers with the William Mattar Law Offices would like to encourage citizens of New York to not drink and drive. Instead, call a cab or loved one to get you home safely.
