Fatigue shouldn't lead to a drunk driving charge

Trying to get home after a night out with friends can be a real challenge. You might have to contend with traffic; however, there is another hazard that you might face. What happens if you are fatigued and not driving in the best manner? Have you ever thought about what you'd do if you are pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving? There is a chance that you might face an arrest even if you didn't have a drop of alcohol to drink.

Swift planning is critical for drunk driving defenses

The warm months of summer are almost over, so you only have a limited amount of time to enjoy some of the outdoor activities that hinge on sunny and hot days. We know that you might not want to think about the leaves and snow falling, but those days are coming.

Remember to use a designated driver for the 4th of July

If you are going to head out to a fireworks display or barbecue for the 4th of July holiday and plan on drinking, make sure that you plan to have a designated driver or a similar way home after.

Of course, you can't predict the future so there might not be a way that you will know that you are going to head out for drinks.

Drunk driving charges can ruin your summer fun
