Avoid getting arrested for drunk driving charge with these tips

| Oct 19, 2018 | Drunk Driving |

If you’ve been arrested and accused of drunk driving, you’re at risk of having it happen again. The fact is, the way society has organized our cities and towns around driving — and the fact that virtually everyone enjoys drinking alcoholic beverages — sets up a scenario in which drunk driving is extremely common, regardless of whether the drivers get arrested or accused of the offense.

In order to reduce your chances of a drunk driving arrest in the future, here are some important things to remember:

Buy alcohol when you’re sober

If you’re going to have a party, always buy enough alcohol so that you don’t need more later in the night. If you need more, you could be tempted to drive your vehicle while drunk in order to purchase more.

Get the Uber or Lyft apps

By predownloading the apps for Lyft or Uber, and registering your account, you’ll be prepared if you’re ever out on the town and realize that you’re too drunk to drive. If you don’t have these apps downloaded already, you might be too inebriated to mess with the hassle of setting up your account on the device, and you’ll be more tempted to drive home while intoxicated.

Make sure your phone is charged and carry a spare battery

If your phone goes dead, you won’t be able to call a friend or Uber to take you home. You might want to carry a spare battery with you or at least your charging cable for this purpose.

If you were accused of drunk driving — regardless of the circumstances — you may want to reach out to a qualified defense attorney who can help you navigate your criminal court proceedings.
