It’s time to celebrate the end of 2022 and ring in the New Year with your friends and family. But before you get too ahead of yourself, make sure you have made arrangements if you are planning on drinking. You don’t want to ring in the New Year with a DUI. This holiday brings one of the highest rates of DUI accidents and you don’t want to be a part of it. However, if you make the mistake of drinking and driving and find yourself behind bars, call A-EZ Out Bail Bonds. Our team works around the clock, any time of the year. Meanwhile, here are some tips to prevent a DUI this New Year.
Stay the Night
If you are planning to drink with friends or family, we recommend asking to spend the night as well. That way, you can relax and enjoy the night knowing you won’t have to get behind the wheel. This will bring peace to you and your loved ones, and the fun can continue all night long.
Stay in One Location
Although there might be many exciting events happening around town, just pick one. You don’t want to be driving around to different places this night. It puts you at a higher risk of getting a DUI or being hit by a drunk driver. Stay in one location and keep track of your drinks before heading home.
Host the Celebration
Hosting a party is a lot of work, but the outcome is great. You get to celebrate in the comfort of your home. You don’t need to worry about having one too many drinks. However, you want to still have good judgment and make sure that your guests get home safely or spend the night.
It’s important to always have a designated driver if you will go out drinking with your friends or family. Take turns being the designated driver when you go out, so no one feels like they are always missing out and getting tempted to drink.
Call an Uber or Lyft
If you have had one too many drinks, leave your car at your friend’s house and call a car-sharing service to get you home. You can always pick up your car the next day. Or you can plan ahead and take an Uber or Lyft to and from the New Year celebration.
DUI Drivers Are Easy to Spot
Don’t try to be sneaky this New Year and get behind the wheel when you’ve been drinking. Authorities are very alert during this holiday and can spot drunk drivers with some of these common signs:
· Making wide turns
· Almost striking an object or vehicle
· Braking erratically
· Turning abruptly or illegally
· Driving at a very slow speed
· Stopping without cause
· Driving on the wrong side of the road
