Here are two articles with the same message and it's not just the driver. It is about people on the highways doing the right thing.
If you are on the road and you see someone swerving back and forth putting others at risk what would you do? No matter where you are, call 911. Dispatch will connect you to State Police that covers the area. In these cases both divers were stopped before they hurt someone. One was under the influence and one was not. However driver #2 was driving in a very dangerous manner. Do your part, help keep the highways safe and people alive and remember Never Drink and Drive.
