Just two days after a pair of street racers going 140 mph on the Long Island Expressway were arrested, a drunk Smithtown woman was clocked at the same high speed on the Sagtikos Parkway. Linda Camps, whose blood-alcohol was twice the legal limit, was charged with drunken driving and other traffic violations. Crazy drivers who race at these terrifyingly high speeds-whether it’s due to alcohol or daredevil thrills-have one thing in common. They put the lives of everyone else on the road in danger, causing serious injuries and even death to other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
Drinking and speeding often go hand-in-hand, and there’s no excuse for either behavior. Anyone who chooses to drink and drive doesn’t care about the risks and dangers involved and chooses to put every other driver on the road at risk of injury or death.
We have seen far too many cases in our office of passengers and other drivers who were very seriously injured by a drunk driver, while the drunk driver walked away with little more than a scratch. That’s why Goldstein and Bashner works hard to make sure the victims get the compensation they deserve.
