With the fall weather right around the corner, the return of football also brings with it the perfect excuse to start drinking early in the day. Between rooting for your alma mater during college football Saturdays and your favorite NFL team on Sundays, there will be plenty of time this fall to go out and let loose with friends.
While it’s always great to get together with your closest friends, it is important to do so in a safe manner. As the top DWI lawyer in Monmouth County, NJ, we here at The Law Office of Zapicchi and Liller LLP are constantly offering tips for drivers to avoid a DWI during fall.
Don’t Drive If You Don’t Have To
Unless you only plan on stopping in for a little bit, there is no need to drive to the bar if you don’t have to. It’s always better to Uber or Lyft your way to the bar when you plan on drinking. It’s not rare for cops to patrol near pubs and saloons at 2 a.m.
Never Risk It
The bottom line is that if you’re unsure whether you’re sober enough to drive, then you aren’t. Even if you drove to the bar, leave your car at the bar and go back the next morning. The money you’ll spend on a cab, Uber or Lyft is nothing compared to the fees and fines that come with DWI charges in Burlington County, NJ.
Just like our last tip, one of the easiest ways to avoid ending up in handcuffs this fall is by being smart. If you do go out early in the day for a football game, don’t stay out all night. Little things like staying away from liquor and binge drinking can help you enjoy a day out with friends while still being able to drive home.
