How to Avoid Impaired Drivers on the Road - Impac

Impaired drivers are a continuous threat on highways around the country. Nearly 30 people a day in the United States lose their lives in drunk driving crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

In the fleet industry, it is vital that drivers know how to identify and avoid impaired drivers on the road. Knowing the signs will help ensure the ultimate safety of both drivers and company assets of a fleet business. 

Commons signs of an impaired driver include hugging the center line, hitting objects near the road, making wide turns, driving under the speed limit, tailgating, excessive breaking, swerving into other lanes, inappropriate signaling and stopping for no reason.  

In addition to maintaining awareness of these signs that may identify an impaired driver, there are things fleet drivers can do to lower the risk of becoming the victim of a reckless drunk driver:

• Maintain a generous following distance

• Use extra caution at intersections 

• Never attempt to stop an impaired driver

• Do not try to pass the vehicle

• Make sure seat belts are secured

• Pull over and call the police 

To ensure fleet drivers remain safe throughout daily operations, technology, like telematics, is available for fleet managers to review and report on various driver behaviors. GPS tracking systems provide detailed reporting and remote managing of vehicles, movable assets and employees.
