Seasons greetings! Its that season of the year again – holiday parties, year-end celebrations, and getting together with work associates, family and close friends. The local law enforcement agencies are on the watch for those who have enjoyed a bit too much holiday celebration, and DUI checkpoints will be an effective tool now through the first of the year. We encourage you to be cautious and plan accordingly.
A DUI can happen to anyone, and it doesn’t take much to exceed the legal limits. A DUI related accident or arrest can have significant consequences for the rest of your life. The best plan is simply not to drink and drive. When possible, plan to share responsibilities over the season and have or be a “designated driver”. Help look after those who are near you as you celebrate, and if necessary help them to find a taxi ride home. Have a safe holiday season and best wishes.
