The Dangers of College Parties
Your college experience could be the most important and most fun time of your entire life. You often meet lifelong friends, learn more than you thought possible, and pave the way for your future career. However, traditional college students often find it difficult to balance work and play when they are at college and away from home for the first time. Most campuses have countless activities and parties happening every day of the week.
College parties are a great way to engage with your fellow students but can be very dangerous places in certain situations. If you or someone you know has received a DUI or DWI charge after partying on or near a college campus, call Rhode Island DUI lawyer Matthew Marin at 401-287-4384 to discuss your case and legal options.
Why Are College Parties Dangerous?
Trends in college partying have been the subject of countless films and TV shows. Many students can’t wait until they are in college and away from their parents so they can party as much as they want. However, certain bad situations can lead to consequences that could ruin your future. Aspects of a college party that make them particularly risky for students are:
- Strong peer pressure
- Free-flowing alcohol
- Massive crowds
- Youthfulness and debauchery
Additionally, students may be wrongly accused of certain crimes based solely on their proximity to a college party. For example, over-zealous law enforcement officials may pull over a completely sober driver and charge him with DUI or DWI just because he or she left a college party.
