Oh, the weather outside is frightful, and since we’ve no place to go… let’s all make a pledge to drive sober this holiday season and for all the days that follow. Celebrating with friends and family is one of the perks of this time of the year when everyone seems to be in a more giving mood. Just remember that as fun and fantastic as the holidays are, there is nothing fabulous about drunk driving.
A few reminders for a DUI-free 2017 Christmas season:
- Christmas falls on a three-day weekend, so there is much more time to celebrate. Plus, once you sober up from Christmas, there’s New Years… so why even bother being sober that entire week? To be safe, and healthy, and to end the year on a high note… not trying to sell your presents for bail money.
- You don’t want a Christmas DUI. You don’t want a New Year DUI. You really don’t want any kind of DUI or the consequences that follow, like an ignition interlock requirement, jail time, community service, or a criminal conviction on your record. Bah Humbug.
- Being a designated driver is the ultimate holiday gift. You can be your friends’ safe ride home before leaving for the night. What better way to show you care than to escort your intoxicated friends to their homes where the can sleep it off before Santa’s arrival!
The holiday season is notorious for the number of drunk drivers on the roads, no matter where you live or what time you are driving around. We wish nothing more than for everyone to have a safe and happy holiday season, which only requires that we all do our part to keep ourselves and each other safe. A DUI and ignition interlock device is no fun at any point in the year, so make sure you are safe and commit to remain so, allowing the holiday spirit to live on while keeping those holiday spirits in check.
