    3 Reasons to Appoint a Designated Driver

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Are you planning a big night out? Do you know how you are getting back home? It’s a situation many of us have found ourselves in at one time or another, and despite your confidence at getting behind the wheel, the answer is not to drive yourself home if you have been drinking.

    Before you begin drinking, appoint a sober driver. While it may not be an easy favor to ask, choosing someone to be the designated driver can help you avoid serious legal and medical consequences.

    1. No Risk of Legal Ramifications: Designating a sober driver eliminates the risk of being charged with a DUI or the other legal consequences of drunk driving. If you are pulled over by a police officer while intoxicated, you may have to prepare yourself for a night in jail and a criminal hearing. Depending on the severity of the DUI charge, consequences range from a permanent mark on your record and long-term license suspension to a lengthy jail sentence.
    2. Avoid Potential Injuries: In addition to the legal ramifications outlined above, drunk driving can result in serious bodily injury to yourself and others. Intoxicated driving impairs your reflexes, sense of direction, and judgment. By not having a sober driver take you to your destination, you are endangering yourself and those whom you encounter on the road.
    3. Enjoy Your Evening: By choosing a designated driver, you are free to enjoy your evening without having to worry about how you will get home. Return the favor on a future outing, and rest easier knowing that you are avoiding the financial, legal, emotional, and physical repercussions of a DUI arrest or traffic accident.

    DUI Prevention: 10 Things You Need to Know

    Last updated 6 years ago

    The best way to prevent a DUI is to avoid drunk driving completely. But if you are pulled over for a suspected DUI, here are 10 things you should know that could help protect and defend you.

    • Don't drink and drive. If you don't consume alcohol or drugs before attempting to drive a vehicle, you won't have to worry about getting a DUI.
    • In many cases you only have seven (7) days to respond in order to protect your driving privileges.
    • Always be courteous to the officers. Being rude or belligerent will not help you in any way.
    • You do not have to help the officers make a case against you. Anything you say or do will be used against you.
    • Field sobriety tests are voluntary. You do not have to do these!
    • You have the choice of a blood test, breath test or a refusal.
    • You do not have the right to speak to an attorney before choosing.
    • Blood tests can be re-tested. Breath tests cannot.
    • Refusing to take a test carries a mandatory minimum one year revocation of your driving privileges.
    • Roadside breath tests (PBTs) are voluntary! They cannot be used to prove guilt or innocence in court, but will be used as evidence to support an arrest.
