Help save lives and avoid a DUI

Drunk driving is a danger to yourself, to people on the roads, to pedestrians and others. While the fortunate reality is that drunk driving fatalities have decreased by 31% overall in the last two decades, there is still a long way to go to prevent these accidents and save lives.

In Pennsylvania, there were 314 alcohol-impaired driving fatalities in 2017, while there were 10,874 in the United States in total. As someone who may enjoy a drink or two on a night out, remember that you can help prevent these deaths.

Talk to your friends and family about the risks of drunk driving

It is important to talk to your friends and family about the risks that are involved when they drive while intoxicated. Even if they aren't over the .08% limit, there is a risk of being impaired enough to cause a collision. The .08% limit is just the per-se limit, which means that the authorities need no further evidence for a DUI charge. This doesn't mean that you can't face a DUI at a lower blood alcohol content (BAC).

Get a ride and save a life

If you do plan to drink, plan ahead to have a ride come to get you. Whether it's a taxi, a ride-sharing service or another way of getting to or from your destination, do what you can to avoid driving when you have any amount of alcohol in your system. Full sobriety is the only way to guarantee that you'll avoid a DUI.

If you are stopped for a DUI, your attorney can help you fight the charges and work toward a solution for your case.
