Fiesta in San Antonio is one of the most anticipated parts of the year. This year it is estimated that over 1 million people took to the streets of San Antonio to celebrate. With all the festivities it is unfortunate, but many people take to getting behind the wheel after having too much to drink. To combat this, law enforcement was out in full force all month long and made 373 DWI arrest in the 11 days of Fiesta alone. (source: Bexar County District Attorney)
A little known fact is that Auto Collisions spike heavily in San Antonio during April, especially during Fiesta week. Often times a collision is a result of distracted driving which can be as bad as driving while intoxicated. If you are involved in an accident and you suspect that the person who hit you may be intoxicated, call the police. You may feel bad that they will get in trouble but the fact is that if you survive an accident with a drunk driver you are lucky. Drivers who get behind the wheel of a vehicle while drunk are a danger to society and must learn the consequences of that action before it is too late.
