Watch out for these fall friends & family gatherings that result in many DUI arrests.
The changing colors of the leaves and cooler weather, and the series of holidays and sporting events set the scene for great memories. However, fall also comes with increased chances of DUI arrests. Some of the most likely fall events to be cautious of are:
Halloween parties are a great way to relax and create memories with your friends and co-workers. But just like any party, Halloween parties create bounteous opportunities to underestimate the amount of alcohol you have consumed.
While enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with your family, you’ll probably have a couple of glasses of wine or beer. After dinner, stick to watching the football game instead of getting behind the wheel..
- College football games
Alcohol is one of the most iconic features of the football game experience. When leaving the stadium afterward, you might need a designated driver, Uber or Lyft. Be cautious, a rider share cost will be less expensive and devastating than a DUI.
- Deer season
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that car crashes involving deer are more than twice as common in the month of November than in the rest of the year. Avoiding a deer while driving is hard enough when sober. Driving while intoxicated can be almost impossible.
After a fall festive event filled with alcohol consumption, don’t run the risk of a DUI. It’s simply not worth it.
