Keep Your Friends Safe on St Patrick’s Day:

Keep Your Friends Safe on St Patrick’s Day St. Patrick’s Day is a time to get together with friends and have fun. Chances are, there will be alcohol at any party or event you attend. Make sure you have a plan for getting everyone home safely.

Alternatives to Drinking and Driving:

Understanding the Risks:

Understanding the Risks Driving under the influence can hurt or kill you, your passengers, other drivers, and pedestrians. DUI arrests can result in fines, jail time, and even the loss of your license. A DUI conviction can prevent you from getting a new job.

DUI Statistics:

DUI Statistics Every two hours, three people are killed in alcohol-related crashes. Alcohol-related crashes cost American taxpayers $32 billion every year. 4 million adults report that they have driven while intoxicated at some point.

Responsible Driving:

Responsible Driving The best way to avoid a DUI and keep everyone safe is to not drink at all before driving. If you do decide to drink, consider taking a taxi as an alternative to driving home. Remember, if someone takes your car keys, they are doing it to keep you safe. Don’t insist on driving if you have been drinking.

Understanding the Law:

Understanding the Law Every state has a blood alcohol content threshold of .08. If stopped by law enforcement, you may be required to perform a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test. Your OC DUI attorney can help you understand what steps you need to take after a DUI arrest.

What to Do if You are Suspected of DUI:

What to Do if You are Suspected of DUI Even people who have not been drinking can be stopped on suspicion. Stay calm and cooperative, but be mindful of your rights. Remember that you can rely on your OC DUI attorney to provide a defense if you are unfairly charged with a DUI.

Enjoying the Holiday Safely:

Enjoying the Holiday Safely Check with your local bar to see if they have a free food promotion for designated drivers. Make plans to ensure your designated driver has fun while you are out on St. Patrick’s Day. Be sure to have your OC DUI attorney’s number in case you or a friend needs help in a difficult situation.
