Please Stay Safe - Avoid an Idaho DUI During the Holidays

Happy Holidays! I hope that many of you get the opportunity to take some time away from work and enjoy the company of friends and family.

Holiday DUI In Boise

For many, holiday celebrations often involve alcohol. This can lead to problems when people choose to drive home from those ugly sweater parties. In fact, the holiday season has become notorious for high volumes of impaired driving accidents and alcohol-related injury or death. As if impaired driving was not enough on its own, these dangers are often enhanced during the holiday season by increases in traffic (holiday shopping madness and road trips to grandmother's house) and variable winter road conditions.

In an effort to decrease the number of impaired drivers on the road December was recently declared National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. This means that there will be an increased law enforcement presence on roadways and an emphasis on DUI arrests. Don't put yourself and others at risk: drive carefully, be aware of how much you have had to drink, call a cab/uber, or designate a sober driver... an even better idea might be to just make yourself cozy by the fire and settle in for the night!

However, if you or a loved one are arrested for DUI it is important to act quickly. People make mistakes - burying your head in the snow until after the new year will only make matters worse. I am available throughout the holiday season to discuss your case and answer any questions you have.Take some time to relax and enjoy the company of others this holiday season. You have earned it! 2018 is right around the corner and before you know it you will be back at the grindstone with nothing to look forward to until Valentine's Day. However, if your R&R involves drinking...stay safe and keep off the road.
