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 personnel ramp of their efforts during holiday seasons because it is their duty to keep the streets clear from intoxicated drivers. Drunk drivers put every driver around them in danger. Sometimes these efforts take the form of DUI checkpoints, which can mean a systematic approach to screening drunk drivers. DUI checkpoints are especially common during holidays such as New Years.

Don’t end up being a statistic. Police officers make mistakes and the Breath Test Machine could be inaccurate. But why take a chance? Make sure you have a plan before you go out and drink on New Years Eve. Our Orlando DUI lawyers are here to assist you if you get pulled over. But with a careful plan and a designated driver, hopefully you will never need to call us. Unfortunately if you do, we will represent your case. (407)228-3838.

Have a great New Years!
