Don't let party plans this weekend derail your life

This year, New Year's Eve falls on a Saturday, which means that this is going to be a huge party weekend. If you are going to drink alcohol over the weekend, make sure that you take the time to make proper plans. These plans should include finding a safe way to get home after the party.

Know what matters (besides a Breathalyzer) in a DUI case

People sometimes think that if they "pass" a Breathalyzer test, they won't have to face criminal charges for drinking and driving. This isn't the case at all. It is sometimes possible to face drunk driving charges even if your blood alcohol concentration is lower than the .08 percent legal limit when you take the breath test.

Traffic stops can sometimes lead to drunk driving charges

Field sobriety tests are one thing that a person who is driving drunk might think they can handle; however, police officers are trained to detect signs of impairment during these tests. Knowing what police officers look for during the field sobriety test, as well as during other points in the traffic stop, might help you if you are facing the prospect of having to go through a drunk driving stop.

Know the penalties and your rights in a drunk driving case

In our previous blog, we discussed the designated driver program that is present over the holiday season. This program means that you don't have to risk driving home drunk after a night of partying. If something happens and you do drive home, you might see the flashing lights that let you know a police officer needs to speak with you. If you are pulled over for the suspicion of drunk driving, you are going to be taken through several different steps to determine if you are intoxicated.

South Carolina has a holiday designated driver program

Now that the holiday season is here, South Carolina wants all residents and visitors to be able to spend their time with loved ones. Law makers don't want anyone to have to spend the holiday in jail because of drunk driving, and they don't want families to have to mourn the loss of a loved one who was killed in a drunk driving accident.
