It’s the time of the year for holiday parties. This is when we gather with friends, family, and coworkers to celebrate the end of one year and the start of another. At many of these parties, drinks are served rather liberally. It’s great to have a good time at such a party, but it’s important to remember not to drink and drive. As a Portland injury attorney, we know exactly how terrible drunk driving accidents can be. Therefore we urge everyone to be safe and drink responsibly this holiday season.
Holiday Drinking Accidents
The decision to drink and drive is made before a person ever leaves the house. If you take your car to a party where you know you’ll be drinking, you are substantially more likely to drive and drive home. You may have plans to only drink one drink, but those plans can go out the window. Suddenly a person has had far more than they intended but still tries to drive home. In their impaired state of mind, they think they are OK when they’re over the legal limit. By leaving your car at home and taking a cab to your party, you can be sure that you won’t be tempted to drive home.
Apps like Uber and Lyft make hailing a cab so easy, there really is no excuse for driving under the influence. All it takes is one bad decision to permanently change the lives of the driver and of the person or people they have injured. The cost of a cab is far, far less than paying for such an accident for the rest of your life.
