Our Santa Rosa lawyers at the Law Office of Joe Bisbiglia have worked with many clients that have experienced a DUI and while we’ve had great success in helping them fight against their charges, the client may prefer to not have required our services. We want to help you avoid a DUI charge and so, within this latest post, our Santa Rosa lawyers provide more information about avoiding a DUI.
Choose a taxi
One of the best ways to even avoid having to make a decision regarding driving is booking a taxi to and from your destination ahead of time. Plan with your local taxi firm for the evening and ensure that you know the timing for your pick up at the end of the night. This is a convenient way to travel when you know you’ll be consuming alcohol.
Look into Uber
The ride-sharing platforms have evolved recently to offer a full-service option for those who wish to travel home after a night on the town. Uber is one of the more popular choices, but there are other apps available from your smartphone. The process is convenient and can ensure that you arrive safely at your destination and then home again. Make sure you know as much as possible about your driver and their history before entering their vehicle.
Speak with your bartender
Those who have been serving you drinks throughout the night are sometimes held legally responsible for you if you are involved in an accident later. The law varies by state, but each bartender will be happy to help guide you regarding the local options for getting back home. There are programs run by MADD (Mothers Against Drink Driving) and other groups designed to ensure that you arrive home safe and your vehicle is driven for you by a sober person.
Work with local transportation companies in your area to stay safe while enjoying your evenings out over the coming months. Our Santa Rosa lawyers can help protect you and provide guidance regarding further safety tips. Call us today to learn more.
