Spring break needn't end with drunk driving charges

New Hampshire students will undoubtedly be among thousands of others in the nation who are gearing up for spring break. Finals are over, a little money's been saved, and everyone is ready for some fun in the sun. Some students choose to stay in the area, visiting local beaches and saving the gas money it would take to travel to another state. Others venture clear across the country. Neither group wants to wind up facing drunk driving charges, however; so, it's best to have a pre-made plan to avoid this types of situation.

It's often easy to spot drunk drivers on New Hampshire roads. They tend to swerve in and out of their lanes, repeatedly tap their brakes for no apparent reason, and speed up, then slow down without traffic patterns necessitating it. Those who don't want to participate in such behaviors behind the wheel may want to research good ideas for avoiding DUI.

The most obvious preventative measure is to not consume alcohol when planning to drive. Friends make great accountability partners at times. Those who doubt themselves can ask a friend ahead of time to step in and take the keys if it appears they are unable to safely and legally drive a car.

Those who do plan to drink alcohol make good decisions when they stop drinking far in advance of their departures by motor vehicles. Consuming food with each drink is also a good idea as solid foods slows alcohol absorption in the body. If one moment includes lots of friends, a beach, beautiful sands and ocean waves, and the next, handcuffs and a police officer reading personal rights while making a drunk driving arrest, it's typically best to call upon experienced representation.
