Don't Wreck a Good Night!

It is that time of year again! A new year is right around the corner and people everywhere will make their “resolutions” to improve various aspects of their lives. But before the New Year can begin, the clock has to strike midnight on New Year’s Eve. It is a well-known fact there will be countless New Year’s Eve parties and plenty of opportunities to find trouble no matter where you are.

            If you are planning on going out on New Year’s Eve to celebrate the New Year with some friends and some alcohol, make sure you will not find yourself behind the wheel of a vehicle. It is smart to always plan ahead with friends so that everyone knows what the plan is regarding traveling to and from destinations during the night of celebration. Companies like Uber and Lyft are affordable and safe alternatives to drinking and driving if you are not in a group with responsible designated driver. Don't wreck a good night by drinking and driving.

Every holiday season, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTS) teams up with State and local law enforcement in an effort to keep drunk drivers off the streets through the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday enforcement crackdown. During this highly visible enforcement period, law enforcement agencies will be heavily cracking down on impaired driving.

If you are arrested for DUI under any circumstance, you need to contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately to ensure the best possible outcome.  The “10-day rule” in Georgia means the clock starts ticking at the time of arrest.  An experienced DUI attorney will get to work on helping you retain your driving privileges pending the outcome of the criminal charges surrounding your DUI.  Outcomes vary depending on your personal circumstances, such as prior criminal history or your age. Our attorney Christopher Chapman was named one of the 10 Best DUI Attorneys for Client Satisfaction in the State of Georgia by the American Institute of DUI/DWI Attorneys.  If you have been arrested for DUI in Georgia, contact him today at cchapman@smithwelchlaw.com or call 770-389-4864
