Many of us are scrambling to finish up holiday shopping and at the same time trying to enjoy the season and get into the spirit. If we are lucky, the companies we work for throw a holiday party to celebrate the end of the year and to show its appreciation for the hard working employees. No matter how you feel about attending these get together, alcohol always makes for a more interesting time. The Today Show recently aired a piece about alcohol at work functions, and showed that most often people do not know how drunk they are getting. Government data shows that 40 percent of all car accident deaths are caused by alcohol around Christmas and New Year. All this results in more and more DUI patrols on the roads at this time of year.
Work holiday parties should always stress the importance of having a designated driver or getting a taxi after drinking, but this is not always the case. Even if the company takes all the proper precautions, if you yourself are not aware that you are over the limit, you are likely to insist that you can drive. If you are pulled over this holiday season and arrested for a DUI there are number of things you must remember. Be polite and respectful: an argumentative or difficult attitude will only makes things worse for you both in the short and long run.
