Happy Halloween! The Scary Truth of Halloween DUIs

As the spirit of Halloween arrives, many adults take it upon themselves to dress up, party with friends, and drink, especially this year as it lands on a Saturday night. Whatever you might do this Halloween to get your fix of frights, it can get even scarier when the night ends with an arrest for DUI charges.  

Don’t let a DUI be the scariest thing that happens this Halloween and consider these suggestions:

If you decide to drink on Halloween, the easiest and most reliable way to avoid a DUI is to simply avoid driving at any cost.  Instead, consider having a designated driver, such as an Uber or Lyft to take you home.  Although, not being behind the wheel is certainly not license to overindulge on alcohol or drugs, it does ensure that you won't have to worry about being arrested for a DUI offense.When consuming alcoholic beverages, keep track of how much you have consumed.  

The most common form of a DUI is alcohol-related. Any time you drive with a blood alcohol concentration over the legal limit of 0.08 or in cases even when your BAC is below 0.08, you are risking a DUI offense even if you do not feel the effects of being "drunk" or impaired.  If you attend a Halloween party and choose to drink, be sure to have a designed driver, regardless of the amount of alcohol you have consumed

Do not consume drugs, including prescriptions, as being under the influence of drugs can result in a DUI charge as well.

Even when the drugs are prescribed to you by a physician, any time your ability to operate a vehicle is impaired by the effects of a drug, you are putting yourself at risk of a DUI arrest.

Avoid receiving a “morning after” DUI.

For some, it is surprising to learn that just because they slept through the night, it does not mean they will be completely sober the morning after. Depending on the number of drinks consumed, a person’s blood alcohol concentration may still be over the legal limits. It is important to give yourself enough time for alcohol to exit your system before getting behind the wheel.

A DUI arrest not only ruins your evening, but can also create a haunting conviction on your record, which can take a toll on your future. We hope that you do not risk a DUI charge, but if you do find yourself in a spooky legal situation, please contact the Law Offices of Tina M. Barberi, PC to discuss your matter.
