Driving while alcohol-impaired continues to be a significant traffic safety issue both nationally as well as locally, as seen in Lake County as well as throughout the Chicago area. Various Lake County accidents in which the driver was alcohol-impaired are summarized in posts found under the DUI category. As seen in those posts, many such crashes result in serious injuries, and some of these injuries resulted in fatalities.
Also of note is the increasingly common problem of drivers who drive while drug-impaired, which is discussed on the “Car Accidents Involving Drivers Under The Influence Of Drugs” page.
