Avoiding a DUI in Oceanside is easy. Don’t drive while impaired on alcohol or drugs and don’t drive with a blood alcohol (B.A.) level of .08 or more. How is that for good advice! You are probably saying “…But how do I do that and still party?” You plan your partying and have a backup emergency alternative if you are caught without a plan…like have someone you can call, or somewhere you can stay over night, call a cab,…or don’t drink or use drugs.
The best way is to have a designated driver who does not drink but goes out with you. They must be reliable, I cannot tell you how many “DD” (Designated Driver) DUI’s we have handled. As the party goes on the “DD” thinks they can have one or two drinks, the next thing you know, they are too drunk to drive and you think you are better off and you drive….your reasoning has definitely been impaired if you drive because you are “not as drunk”. Its not only the potential dollar costs of the DUI in fines, attorneys, programs and insurance, and jail, it is the potential injury or death of an innocent person on the highway or your best friend in the back seat….
Drunk Driving is a serious offense. You only need to be impaired, not drunk. One night can change your whole life, do not drink and drive or ride with someone who is impaired.
