Holidays and DUIs

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Every year we can be certain of a few things such as birthday days, being paid, and having to pay bills. With our lives already busy, and the United States trying to steadily recover from an economic recession many people are caught “down in the dumps”. However, one thing can be certain that every year holidays not only come, but usually turn frowns upside down in order to turn situations and attitude brighter and better. We travel from place to place in order to see our family, friends, and loved ones. Yet, one thing that we can be sure will not change is law enforcement presence on and off the roadways.

We can all assume that holidays bring on enormous amounts of traffic from place to place. People would like to think that all of these roadways are filled with safe drivers that are just trying to get from location to location without an issues, but that assumption can never be certain. DUIs are not on holiday during that which everyone else is. Holidays are actually a prime time when actual DUIs occur with so many festivities occurring.

People could easily go to a company Christmas party and toss back a beer, and maybe a few seasonal cocktails with work associates and feel nothing and assume they are fine to drive home. However, assumptions like that can easily end in a present no one wants, injury or even death. Drivers often make the hasty rationalization that since they only had one or two drinks it will be okay to make a short drive home. Wrong. These are the ideas that people who usually get charged, and convicted of DUIs have and inevitably regret in the long run.

Holidays are a time for everyone to be rejoicing and celebrating the reason of the season with those that they are about so make making memories that will last a lifetime. But, memories do not make themselves and require the presence of the person to work. If you’re too busy drinking and driving how to do you expect to have those memories now and later?

At The DUI Clinic, we like to say that friends don’t let friends plead guilty. While many people who have been charged with a DUI are proven guilty, many are not. We can help you level the playing field and get the best results for you. Our goal is to minimize the impact of a DUI charge on your life.
