Staying Safe During The Holidays

by Dec 8, 2011DWI / DUI, Sam Edmunds

It’s a fact: DUI patrols increase during the holiday season, and so do DUI arrests. With all the holiday parties over the next several weeks, you may well find yourself in a situation where you’re not sure if it’s safe to drive home.

Don’t assume you can slip home unnoticed, or “get home before the last drink kicks in.” Don’t be fooled by innocuous-seeming drinks like egg nog or sparkling wine, either. Check the percentage of ABV (alcohol by volume). Those sweet, festive drinks can add up quickly.

Holiday Party

When in doubt, secure a sober ride. Call a friend. Call a taxi. Hail a bus. Sound expensive or inconvenient? Try having a felony on your record.

If you do find yourself facing DUI charges, it’s not too late to reach out for help. Contact an experienced attorney who specializes in DUI cases. Speak with someone who will make you a priority and fight for your rights.

This holiday season, keep things merry and bright. Drink responsibly, know your limits, and know when to seek help. Let’s work together to make sure that 2012 starts out on a festive — and safe — note.
