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.

You do have alternatives available to driving home on your own. You can find a designated driver for the weekend so that you can enjoy the party and still get home safe. You can also opt to take public transportation or take a cab.

It is important for you to think about your future as you are making your plans for the weekend. It might be tempting to think that you will be fine to drive home, but you might end up having to face a financial hit later if you are stopped for drunk driving.

Not only do you have to think about the criminal charges you might face if you are caught drinking and driving, you also have to think about what will happen if you are involved in an accident. There is a chance that you could injure or kill yourself or someone else. This could affect you and your loved ones.

If you do end up drinking and driving, you should be prepared for a journey through the criminal justice system. This can include having to plan a defense in an effort to protect your freedom. Learning about what options you have can help you to determine what you are going to do.
