Alaska fatal crash appears to be drunk driving accident

Passengers who willingly get into vehicles operated by people who are intoxicated are at a great risk of being involved in a drunk driving accident. In fact, they could become the victims of fatal drunk driving accident incidents like one that took place recently in Alaska. The accident is a sad reminder of how quickly a night out can turn into a tragedy.

Alaska drunk drivers who kill can face jail time, civil suits

For drunk drivers in Alaska who are the cause of fatal accidents, penalties abound. Not only are they in violation of state criminal laws regarding driving under the influence, usually ending in jail time, but they may also face civil lawsuits as well. This ability to legally require them to pay for their bad choices serves to protect both the community in which the drunk drivers reside, as well as their victims' families.

Unimportant tasks can lead to Alaska auto accident incidents

Texting, eating and talking on the phone are all commonplace occurrences for most Alaska residents. However, none of these tasks should be happening while a person is driving; after all, the risk of getting into an auto accident increases when the driver isn't paying attention to the road. In fact, distracted driving is a significant factor in many auto accident incidents throughout the state and nation.
