Louisiana teens learn lesson about drunk driving crashes

Many young people enjoy a good party, but sometimes a person's partying gets out of hand and they become intoxicated. Unfortunately, being intoxicated can lead to a series of bad decisions. One of the worst decisions a person can make while intoxicated is to get behind the wheel of a car. Drunk drivers are not in control of their mental or physical faculties, and as such have a great potential to cause car accidents. In fact, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection reports that the state of Louisiana sees more than two times the national average of drunk driving crash fatalities for individuals between the ages of zero to 20.

In this respect, one surprising proponent of self-driving vehicle technology is our nation's alcohol industry.

Once that time period has passed, a person can no longer file a lawsuit even if the lawsuit otherwise would have been valid.

The danger of taking cash after an auto accident

Some people may try to do this because they drove without any auto insurance or because they have too many points on their driving records.
