Personal Attention From The Experienced Advocate You Deserve

Think before you drink and drive during the holiday season

As you get ready to spend time with your friends and loved ones this holiday season, take some time to review your travel plans. You are not the only who is going to be traveling the roads in Atlanta to visit others. Each year during Thanksgiving and the winter holiday season, millions of people travel the roads to see their friends and relatives in other states. Last year, the number of people to hit the roads during Thanksgiving was 48.7 million, states AAA Newsroom. No matter your destination, keep in mind the roads are going to be a lot busier than usual. 

More traffic means there is a greater likelihood of you being involved in a collision with other motorists. Also, more people tend to drink during the holiday season. According to the Scramsystems.com, the percentage of alcohol-related car accidents that occur around this time of year is 40, the number of DUI-related arrests increases by 30 percent. To avoid being a drunk driving accident victim or receiving DUI charges, take some time to review the following advice. 

Think ahead 

Many people assume they will not consume alcohol when they are with their loved ones only to turn around and have a few drinks before they leave. If you are a social drinker, plan ahead by assuming you will drink while you are around others. Put together a plan of action just in case you leave right after having alcohol. No matter how little you drink, if you do not allow enough time to pass before you get behind the wheel, you could end up with a DUI charge. 

Make alternative travel plans 

One of the most important things you can do to avoid DUI charges is to have designated drivers and alternative travel arrangements. Ask your friends if you can ride with them. Make sure they are sober first. You should also ask some of your family members to act as your designated drivers. If there is no one available to give you a safe ride home, call an Uber or Lyft ride or a taxi. 

Not driving yourself around may seem like an inconvenience. But the lives you save and the legal issues you can avoid are worth the extra effort.
