Drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and even pedestrians are reminded to use the road responsibly. Drivers are specifically reminded NEVER to drive while impaired. P. Mark Shayani of Pacific Attorney Group says, “There can never be any good reason for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.”
Shayani explains that impaired driving is not only about driving under the influence of alcohol. “Some over-the-counter drugs and prescription medications may cause impaired driving.” As a driver or rider, it is always good to read warning labels and follow directions of use about operating heavy machinery, which includes driving a car or riding a motorcycle.
