Default Would you report a suspected DUI?

I did. Having been popped in my younger days, I struggled with it.

This guy could hardly keep his car between the lanes - in some cases he wasn't. He wandered into my lane, but I initially took it as someone who missed his exit. Then I watched him a bit longer and his speed was all over the place. 30 mph fluctuations all while swerving in during rush hour traffic. I couldn't take it and called it in.

So then, we get off at the same exit and he nearly rear ends me. I call the local PD and report our location. The guy is seemingly getting worse. I don't know how he didn't end up on a curb.

I hope he got home without incident.

I'm the same way, I don't want to rat on the guy but he was all over the place. As I was on the phone with the cops I had to ask for the ambulance because he hit a family head on. He got knocked out and slaked on the gas and went into the woods about 100 feet, crazy because he zigzagged through some big trees. I helped the family with a 2 year old and a 6 month old baby but they were fine. Then I went and checked on the guy so he didn't run away. He was bloody as fuck but ok. The police drug his ass out of there and the other family was fine. They were in a big truck and he was in a small old Mazda/Toyota type truck. Both completely totaled.

So from now on yes I will call it in the second I see someone that bad! U did good. Even though u feel stupid u could save many of lives

Thanks. I'd have felt A LOT worse had he hit someone. Fortunately, after we got off the interstate speeds were reasonable. But 35 head on is a lot of impact

About 5 years ago. It was 12pm. Guy was piss drunk all over the road. We called the sheriffs. Guy mowed over a mail box and was doing 30mph in a 50.

I couldn't believe the family were 100% ok! When the 2 baby's came out my heart skipped a beat. I know how u feel because I've done some dumb shit and the man in me hates to rat out some dude thats probably almost home and can sleep it off instead of getting fucked by the cops for years for a dwi but he could easily kill himself or someone else real quick too

I was like you guys at one point in my life and wouldn't want to rat anyone out and honestly I probably wouldn't have because I did some really dumb shit. But my brother in law got killed in a head on collision by a drunk driver. He was 21, the drunk fucking cunt was a 60 year old grandma. The news reported there was alcohol involved. Guess who everyone thought the drunk one was? You might not want to rat someone out but when my wife and I had to go tell a mom her son was dead at 3 in the morning I can promise you I wished like hell someone would have "ratted" on this bitch. I have absolutely no sympathy.

You did the right thing. Back in high school one of my closest friends was killed by another close friend who had too much to drink while driving. That's a story for another day, but the tragedy could have been prevented. Years later I was hit head on by a kid who was DUI. I was only going 35mph and he was going about 25 but add the two up and it's a painful collision. The airbag saved my life and was able to walk away. We've all done stupid shit, but putting others in harms way should never be allowed.

Now I've seen a few people smoking a j or having a road soda but not fucked up, and I could care less. Hell i had a dude stop and give me a joint at a stop light a few years back because I gave him a thumbs up as I passed him. Lol

Hell yea I'd call. I'd pull his ass over too.
Once I came up on a guy in a ditch. Was gonna offer to yank him out until I walked up on him and he was shi!tfaced drunk. So I immediately called 911. Then he got pissy with me and tried getting physical. So, I conveniently "detained" him until the Trooper arrived. The Trooper thought it was funny that I just happen to have Zip-cuffs in my truck. (had from my last deployment)

Bottom line, he could have easily killed someone. I don't drink at all, hate drunk people and anyone who drives drunk should be hung. I used to drink in my younger days, but NEVER drove drunk.

Thanks for the feedback. I struggled with it initially, because I've been popped before and know the hassle it creates. Seriously, this was probably the worst I've ever seen someone and it was at 6:30. Not peak rush hour, but there was still a lot of traffic on the road.

Don't feel bad for a second. You did the right thing. I hope the police caught up with him BEFORE he made it home. He made the choice to drive. Screw him. Don't feel guilty.

I call the Local PD or Staties ANY time I see anything that is too dangerous for traffic. People appearing drunk or methed up, weavers, asshats texting and driving in a 55 doing 35, etc.

I never hesitate since the accident. Sad it took me almost losing my life to realize exactly how much danger can be around me at any time on the road.


THANK YOU for caring enough to call it in.

This exactly! You may think you're doing the guy a favor but you're certainly not doing the family he/she could kill any favors and neither is the selfish dick bag that gets in a 5000lb missile. I couldn't live with myself if I didn't call it in and saw on the news later on a family was hurt or killed.

Never feel bad about that. I called one in while following a guy who was all over the place. Followed him about 8 miles while being pretty damn certain he was gonna kill someone. After many 'oh shits' while on the phone with dispatch we finally waved the sheriff deputy down as he passed us. I ended up knowing the deputy. Pulled the guy over as he was turning in his driveway. Three times the legal limit.

Every time. If they are stupid enough to put other people's lives at risk, they deserve what's coming to em. The only time I've tried to drive drunk was when I was so drunk I apparently didn't know any better or care. If I ended up driving, thinking about it now sober, I would hope that somebody would have reported me before I hurt someone else.
