When it comes to getting drunk and driving, it’s all about the car.
If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can check out this guide on how to spot a drunk or distracted driver.
But it’s not always easy.
The key is to make sure you’re looking for a driver who is alert and aware of his surroundings.
“A lot of the time when you see a car in a dark parking lot or you see someone texting or talking, it can be easy to mistake them as being a drunk,” says Daniel Dornbusch, an associate professor at the University of Minnesota.
“So if you’re walking and you see two people going in the same direction, that can be a warning sign of a drunk person.”
If you see any signs of a driver with a drink on their breath or on their face, Dornbs warns, you’re most likely seeing someone who has been drinking.
Dornbusches research found that people who drank regularly or heavily and who were drinking more frequently in the last month tended to be more likely to be drivers.
“People who drink a lot are more likely than people who don’t to be able to read the signs and it’s a risk factor for accidents,” he says.
“When you see these people you’re likely to see them go past a police officer, you may see them drive off or you may just see them stop at a red light.”
So, what is the best way to spot someone who might be driving while intoxicated?
You can tell whether someone is driving when they’re texting, checking their phone, or just looking at their phone while you’re driving.
If they’re looking at your phone, make sure to ask them to stop and look away from you.
It’s a good idea to take your eyes off the road as you move through traffic.
“You’re likely going to see people get out of their car or make a quick exit if they don’t want to be seen,” says Dornbars.
The safest way to test for intoxication is to stop your car and get out and look at the road.
It can be hard to know how drunk you are until you’re on the road and you have no choice but to check it out.
You can also check to see if the driver has a valid driver’s license or not.
You can check your blood alcohol content at a hospital, but Dornbuses advice is to do this with your eyes closed and not to look down.
If there’s evidence that the person you’re seeing is driving while drunk, you should take them to the nearest police station to have their test taken.
“It’s a pretty simple test.
If it’s within .08, it doesn’t mean they’re going to drink anymore,” says Celine.
“The next step is to get them to get tested again, and that’s going to take some time.”
