The holidays are a great time to spend time celebrating with friends, family, and coworkers. Unfortunately, over 30,000 Colorado residents are arrested for driving under the influence, or DUI, every year. Many of these drivers are arrested during the holidays, when Colorado increases the number of police officers scouring the streets for drunk drivers.
You can help yourself and your loved ones avoid a DUI charge in Colorado this year by planning ahead. For instance:
- Choose a designated driver before the festivities begin. Your designated driver should be someone who is not drinking alcohol at all that night, not merely the person who is least drunk.
- If you don’t have a designated driver you trust, call a cab or use public transportation.
- Host the party yourself so that you do not have to drive. If you host, offer plenty of non-alcoholic drinks as well as snacks and activities that don’t require drinking to have fun.
