Review by Harold McFarland
There are a lot more drunk drivers on the road than most of us would like to think. How big is the problem? Based on a study in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for every 10 people cited for driving under the influence another 37 are missed. According to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration DUI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Manual as many as five percent of drivers are intoxicated on any given weeknight and 10% on a weekend night.
How do you protect yourself with all these intoxicated drivers on the road? The easiest way is to learn to identify them on the road early so you can choose not to be involved in their accident. "Get Out of the Way" contains a lot of information on how to spot them early so you can keep get out of the way. For example, did you know that according to a NHTSA study sixty percent of those who make obscene gestures at other drivers on the road are driving under the influence? Fifty percent of tailgaters and sixty-five percent of those who make a wide radius turn are driving under the influence. These are just a few of the extensive list of signs included in the book.
With the information in this book you can easily teach your children and yourself how to keep safe on the road. "Get Out of the Way: How to Identify & Avoid a Driver Under the Influence" is highly recommended and should be required in every drivers education class.
