Why You Should Always Have a Designated Driver

Last updated 7 years ago

On Friday nights, everyone is feeling good. The week is behind you, the weekend lies ahead, and you are more than ready to have a good time. The last thing on your mind is needing a DUI attorney.

But if you’re planning on having a fun Friday evening, it’s important to plan ahead and make sure you have a designated driver for the evening. The absence of a designated driver when alcohol is involved can have very serious consequences. Take a look at our list of reasons why you should always designate a driver when you go out.

  1. You get peace of mind: If you are a conscientious drinker, chances are you think ahead about how you’re going to get home after a night out. Having a designated driver is a great way to get peace of mind without worrying about what will happen to you at last call, allowing you to have a good time while drinking.
  2. There is a responsible party: When you and your friends venture out on the town in groups, it’s easy to get separated and lose your friends as you travel from bar to bar. Having a sober designated driver means that someone will be responsible and keep everybody together, and you will not need a DUI lawyer later.
  3. It keeps friends out of jail: Getting pulled over for a DUI results in fines as well as possible jail time for the person driving. When a designated driver volunteers to stay sober for the evening, the chances of getting a DUI or DWI citation is reduced to zero.
  4. The road is safer: Having a designated driver means you and your party are not taking any other drivers’ lives into your own hands. It is the responsible and the right thing to do.

Nothing is worth the risk of taking away someone’s life in a drunk driving accident. If you or someone you love is being charged with a DUI, call the DUI lawyers of the Law Office of Bruce Robinson.
