Believe it or not, it is still possible to party and drink alcohol without putting yourself at risk of being accused of DUI. Since DUI is still one of the most common crimes in the nation, I am here to offer you a few tips that will ensure that you will have a chance to enjoy yourself while partying and still drive safely home. Here is how you can do it:
1. It is a good idea to plan ahead and designate one driver who will get you home safely. This will only work if you happen to arrive at a party with a group of friends or family members in one car. A designated driver is somebody who doesn’t drink and this is why he or she can get you to safety when needed.
2. When there is no designated driver to take you home, it is a good idea to call a cab to get home. You can never go wrong with this approach. Try to have at least a few cab numbers in your pocket before the party starts so that you are ready to call a taxi when you need it.
3. Reserving a hotel room close to where the party is about to take place is also a good idea. It might be a more costly option, but it always pays to rent a room instead of risking being accused of DUI.
4. If you have strong will, try to say no to drinking and driving. If you don’t feel like drinking alcohol during a party, or if you know that you can enjoy your time even without drinking, go for it.
