Safety on the roads today is not a certainty with people breaking rules, driving while texting on phone or driving drunk. With the increasing number of road accident deaths, how are you going to stay safe?
Drunk Drivers – A risk to your safety
You are a safe driver, observing all precautions, following the traffic rules strictly however a car soon swerved in front of you bumping into another car. That driver was drunk & risking his & others life.
This has become a common scenario for many who commute daily in tough traffic conditions. You may have seen or experienced such cases yourself, sometimes being a victim or helping a victim of road accident.
With the increase in drunk driving especially during weekends & holidays, you are at risk even if you are an exemplary driver.
How to Avoid Drunk Drivers?
According to a study conducted by WHO, Alcohol is responsible for 10.9% of global fatalities in traffic accidents and alcohol related accidents are twice likely to be fatal.
Now the question arises what to do? Many people ask, we have to go to office or go shopping on weekends and we cannot avoid traffics so what to do? We can be careful and pray. Yes you cannot avoid drunk drivers. You cannot save yourself from something unseen; however you can get help quickly to avoid trauma & permanent disabilities due to delay in medical aid.
To get quick medical services, there is a solution available in the form of a Family Safety Application – CatchMe.

By accessing your live location they can reach you quickly & give you the help required.
