Avoiding a Drunk Driving Arrest

It’s 2 in the morning and you just got done with a night of partying. You and all of your friends are feeling pretty tipsy, and now it’s time to leave. You drove to the party, and your friends keep saying you have to drive everyone home. However, it’s never your obligation to drive drunk for your friends.

If you are facing DUI charges, contact Rhode Island DUI defense attorney Matthew Marin at 401-287-4384 to learn about your legal options.

Ways to Avoid a DUI

In most cases, DUIs are easily avoided. If you are drunk, do not drive home. It is best to plan ahead to avoid any possibilities of a DUI or injuries related to drunk driving, but if that doesn’t work out, you have other options:

  • Call a cab
  • Use the public transportation system, if there is one
  • Appoint a Designated Driver (DD) at the beginning of the night
  • Call a sober friend or family member

Drunk driving should not be your last resort; it shouldn’t be an option at all. Aside from the financial costs of a DUI, you may seriously injure or even kill someone if you drive drunk.
