After the Super Bowl, Don't Touch Down in Jail for DUI

Tomorrow is the Super Bowl, and it's the clash of the Pats and Giants! The Super Bowl is a very popular event for friends and family to get together to enjoy the game. Even those that aren't normally inclined to watch football games may opt to watch the Super Bowl,  if not for the game, the commercials and always extravagant halftime show. For many people, it's also an excuse to enjoy some alcoholic beverages alongside some fun snacks and grilling. Whether at private parties or at bars or restaurants, many Super Bowl viewers will imbibe while they enjoy the game. When the party's over, there are a lot of intoxicated people needing to get home for the night.

New Years Eve and DUI

Let's face it. New Years Eve is a time of celebration, dancing and partying. 2011 was a tough year and we all want to start fresh this upcoming year. In Orlando and the rest of Florida, there will be tons of celebrations including fireworks, food and festivities. Drinking alcohol will commonly be a part of the fun. Whatever you do that night, please make sure you have a designated driver or an alternative way of getting home. Law Enforcement and police from Winter Park, Orlando, Winter Springs, Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, Melbourne and Daytona will be out in force looking to arrest drunk and DUI drivers. 

Police Facebook Page and DUI mugshots: is that fair?

In one small town in California, local police are considering whether to post mugshots (photos of people arrested) of people arrested with DUI on their local police Facebook page. Some citizens believe that is the right thing to do in order to shame the defendant so they don't drink and drive again. Others believe that it is going too far as facebook posts are easy to disseminate and the accused will be faced with the equivalent of a public flogging before they are even convicted.
