Have you made any plans for the winter holidays yet? If you have, make sure you are making plans for getting home safely after you have a few drinks at the parties. It is imperative that you do this for each event you are invited to because nothing will put a damper on the holiday season like having to face criminal charges.
Of course, even the best laid plans can change. There might be a time when you aren’t able to find a ride home. Your only option might be to try to make it home yourself. This is a dangerous prospect because you might not be able to safely drive. Plus, you might be pulled over by police officers if they suspect you are driving drunk. In truth, you might just be tired and not even drunk, but you might be pulled over anyway.
