Because drunk drivers are often unaware of their actions, they may not take evasive actions that a sober driver may in an emergency situation. This often leads to catastrophic injuries for the victims of the intoxicated driver's reckless behavior. They may slam full speed into the back of a stopped car; a sober driver may have attempted to stop and slowed their vehicle, minimizing damage. A drunk driver may sway into other lanes without even attempting to make a correction. Or, in one of the worst-case scenarios, they may drive their vehicle at a high rate of speed into oncoming traffic and cause a head-on-collision. Since many establishments in Las Vegas have alcohol available 24 hours-a-day, the odds of getting into a crash with an intoxicated driver are higher than most other places in the country.
