“I’m not driving tonight, there are too many drunks on the road”, is a comment I hear every New Year’s Eve.Ã‚Â Yet the worst time to drive is actually the Saturday before Christmas, when office parties and family and friend parties usually mean drinking plus driving in much greater numbers, statistically.
People are more likely to get a hotel and spend the night somewhere for New Year’s Eve, and that’s what you should do if you want to avoid being potentially interrogated or arrested for DUI.
Unlike the 17 Orange County checkpoints the weekend before Christmas, (that I have discussed at length in my blog) there is only one tonight that I am aware of – the DUI checkpoint in Placentia.Ã‚Â You can be sure that police will be having roving patrols, and if you know anyone that has an Orange County DUI case, please have them contact me at 714-568-1560.Ã‚Â I can offer information and help out.
Otherwise, I thank you for visiting my blog in now its third year, and two redesigns.Ã‚Â It’s been a pleasure to offer opinion and facts from the front line of DUI defense in Orange County.Ã‚Â I wish you all the best for 2009, and if you have any suggestions for my blog, or just want to contact me anytime, please email me at rmillerlaw at gmail dot com.Ã‚Â Thanks, and Happy New Year!
