Don't Get Caught Driving Drunk This Holiday Season
Nov. 10, 2017
If you are planning on heading out to the local pubs or other parties for football, basketball or the holiday festivities, you need to make sure that you have transportation back home if you plan on drinking a few. There are some instances in which you might not be able to plan in advance. We understand that things happen that you can't control, such as a designated driver backing out or even inadvertently having one sip of alcohol.
One thing that you need to remember is that if you've had any alcohol at all, you are taking a risk if you try to drive home. Any little error you make when you drive might be construed as a reason to pull you over. While this can happen even if you haven't been drinking, it might seem like there is an increased chance if you've had even a sip of alcohol and can still smell it on your breath.
When you are pulled over and arrested for drunk driving, you need to start planning for your defense right then. It might seem like the easier thing to do is to just ignore the problem until you can't any longer. This is a bad idea because you need time to figure out what options you have for your defense.
We realize that nobody wants to think about facing criminal charges during the Christmas season. We are here to help you figure out how you can address these so that you might be able to enjoy the holiday knowing that you have a plan in place to answer the drunk driving charge.
