Wrong-Way Driver Strikes State Police Cruiser in New Haven

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SEE A WRONG-WAY DRIVER

-Slow down and safely move to the right shoulder or as far to the right as possible.

-If it can be avoided do not slam on the brakes, especially if there is a vehicle directly behind you and avoid swerving into other lanes or off of the road.

-Honk the horn, flash your vehicle's headlights and turn on the hazard lights. It's possible that you may be able to make the wrong-way driver aware that they are traveling in the wrong direction.

-As soon as it is safe to do so call 911 and report the wrong-way driver. Be sure to give your location including direction of travel and closest exit. And if you are able to, provide a description of the vehicle.

-NEVER turn around and follow a wrong-way driver!

-It's good practice when driving on the highway at night, especially after midnight, to travel in the right lane. Wrong-way drivers often travel in the left lane thinking they are in the right lane for their direction of travel.

***Please remember that not all wrong-way drivers are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Some wrong-way drivers may be experiencing a medical emergency, while others may be disoriented or confused by signage.
