Unfortunately, the cases of drunk driving happen all too frequently for our roads to be safe and this is the latest example of it.
Here is yet another instance of a Tata Altroz saving its occupant despite driving drunk and being at fault. It may sound counterintuitive but such people are not worthy to be allowed to drive on the roads. Drunk driving is a serious offence and must be discouraged vehemently. The issue is the fact that even though the driver is drunk, other people have to face the consequences as highlighted by this video.

According to the information available with Nikhil, the driver of the Altroz was driving drunk and there were 3 other occupants in the premium hatchback.

This unfortunate incident sheds light on the fact that drunk driving is a grave issue and could hurt the other people on the road too. It is a punishable offence and must be reported if one finds anyone violating this law regarding it. Another pertinent issue to make our roads dangerous is overspeeding. Most incidents happen due to the drivers losing control of the car at high speeds. We must always drive within the speed limit so that even if some idiot loses control of the car, you could prevent yourself.
