Not all motor vehicle accidents are preventable in Baltimore. However, there are two types of accidents that are completely avoidable: drunk driving accidents and wrong-way crashes.
Some Baltimore residents may recall the terrible drunk driving accident that occurred in Ocean City last May. Over Memorial Day weekend last year, a 22-year-old Towson University student was hit by a drunk driver while he was crossing the street.
More than 40 states hold businesses partially accountable for drunk driving accidents when crashes are caused by patrons who are over-served alcohol by businesses. However, Maryland is not one of those states.
