Arizona officials seem to have been caught on their heels with the high number of recent and deadly wrong-way crashes on Arizona's freeways. ADOT is continuing to study sensors to detect and alert DPS to the presence of wrong-way drivers. But is this really a DPS or ADOT problem? Keeping drunk and impaired drivers off the roadways is step one to preventing drunk driving accidents. DPS is the last line of defense and they are making a valiant effort to curb the problem, but there is only so much they can do.
To stop drunk driving accidents, we all need to be more proactive on educating and reminding people about the importance of designated drivers, reminding bars about the liquor laws and tips and tools to identify patrons showing signs of intoxication. Too many innocent people are dying or being seriously injured in drunk driving accidents.
