Prepare for social events that will involve alcohol

The hot summer days and warm nights are going to give way to cooler air soon. This means that it is the perfect weather for bonfires. For many adults, these social gatherings come with the presence of alcoholic beverages, such as beer. If you are planning on enjoying a drink or two when you are by the fire, make sure that you have a plan to make it home.

Drunk driving charges carry serious penalties. We discussed some of these in our previous blog post. It is necessary to think about these so that you have the motivation to make suitable arrangements for getting home. We know that this might not be easy, especially if you have a last-minute invitation to the event.

One thing that you should remember is that there is a chance that the alcohol is impacting you more than what you realize. If you are thinking of driving home after you’ve had a couple of drinks, think twice. Even if is it inconvenient to find another way home, it will probably be even more of an ordeal for you to find someone to bail you out of jail and have to fight a criminal case.

People who are already facing a criminal charge for drunk driving need to take the time to learn about what options they have for handling the criminal matter. These might vary based on the circumstances of the arrest. We know that you are probably upset and just want this all over with. We can’t take away the charges, but we can help you formulate your defense.
