The DUI season in San Diego is the Christmas and New Year Holiday season every year. It is a perfect storm of holiday parties, football season, and Christmas vacations. Holiday "cheer" is often synonomous with imbibing alcoholic spirits, whether it is that Christmas Egg Nog of grannys, or the New Year's Eve Kamikaze....and the attitude "I'm not that drunk, I can make it home," which results in a DUI or accident with injuries or death and the end of life as you know it. Your dreams, your career, your family can all be destroyed in the blink of an eye. There is no excuse for it, there are alternatives to drinking and driving.
There are services available to get you home, taxis, sober friends, designated drivers,...even if you have to sleep it off...you will still have a life when you wake up. The inconveinence of getting your car, or expense of a hotel room, or embarassment of calling a friend is nothing in the grand scheme of things. Risking your life and endangering the safety and lives of innocent people is not an option. Even if you are not involved in a life changing accident, your arrest and conviction can seriously impact your life.
During the DUI season there are more police on the highway looking for "drunk drivers". There are more DUI checkpoints and crackdowns. We wish you a safe and sober holiday season.
