    What to do if you encounter a drunk driver on the highway

    If you should suspect someone of being a drunk driver on the road, stay away from them. You never know when they might do something unexpected! If you have a cellular phone, dial 911 and notify the local authorities. They will ask for your location, direction of travel, and a description of the suspected vehicle. If you do not have a cellular phone, you may want to consider making a few mental or written notes about the driver in case you hear of a hit and run accident occurring in the general area that may have involved the suspected vehicle. Most importantly, take care of your own safety and drive carefully, avoiding driving too close to the suspect driver.
