When you’re driving you should NEVER be under the influence of alcohol or any other type of drug.  Driving under the influence can lead you to get into a New Haven auto accident, get your license suspended and even land you in jail.  Any and all of these circumstances may require that you consult with a New Haven DUI attorney, but we want to make sure you avoid these circumstances all together.

Driving while under the influence of any substance can cause serious damage to you, your passengers, your loved ones and even your friends, whether they are in the car with you or not.  Getting a DUI can not only damage relationships, but it can also do damage to your reputation among colleagues, peers, and other people in your life.  While we all make mistakes, it is certainly important to understand the steps you can take so you can avoid making these mistakes and keeping yourself healthy and happy.

Here are some steps you can take to make sure you never need to enlist our services for a DUI defense.

1.) Always designate a driver.  You cannot get pulled over or in trouble if you avoid being behind the wheel at all.  Before your night starts talk to someone who you will be with that night and decide who will abstain from drinking or doing drugs for the night.  Making sure to decide this before you head out for the night is a critical step because it leaves no gray area about who has “had too many to drive” when you get to end of the night.

2.) Any amount of buzzed/drugged driving is too much.  Do not justify getting behind the wheel by saying you’re only going a few miles down the road.   It only takes you to pass one police officer and have that officer pull you over to get you in trouble for DUI.  No matter the distance, no matter how much/little you’ve had to drink you should not get behind the wheel.

3.) Avoid driving all together by taking public transportation or a ride share.  One of the best ways to keep everyone happy and avoid any incidents behind the wheel is to not get behind the wheel at all.  Make a plan at night to get to and from your destination by either using a ride share or public transportation may be the best defense against getting yourself into a DUI issue.

The best thing you can do to avoid needing the services of a New Haven DUI attorney is to not put yourself into a situation where you would need one in the first place.  If you’re drinking or doing drugs, avoid getting behind the wheel at all costs.  It is not worth the danger, which could be deadly, or the trouble it could cost you with the law.
