There is something scarier than the Boogie Man -- A DUI arrest!!!!!
Halloween is a special time of year. The air gets cooler, fall festivals and parties are abundant. Plus, who doesn’t love to eat candy all night?
Between scary movies and frightful decorations, there is something more sinister than a bump in the night -- drunk drivers.
According to the National Highway and Traffic Halloween is one of the most dangerous nights for drunk driving.
In fact, pedestrian fatalities are the highest they have ever been in 26 years on All Hallows Eve.
Tangi Carter explains why there is no trick when it comes to being safe and having a good time.
The only way to ensure your safety is to get a sober designated driver, call Uber, or call a taxi. Please don’t turn this holiday into a nightmare. If you are arrested for DUI, please do not hesitate to call me at (601) 544-1313. Make sure the orange you wear for Halloween is not a jail jumpsuit!!!!
Here are some tips from the NHTSA:
Plan on being a designated sober driver or walking buddy if a friend plans on drinking.
Make sure your friends and family don’t drive after drinking.
Don’t let friends or family walk alone after drinking.
Take action to prevent guests from walking alone or driving after drinking: serve plenty of food, non-alcoholic beverages, and less alcohol; collect car keys from guests who are drinking; designate sober drivers and walking buddies; and stop serving alcohol an hour before the party ends. Be prepared to call taxis, provide sleeping accommodations, or—if you’re sober—drive guests home yourself.
Remember that social host liability laws may hold you responsible for parties where underage people drink, regardless of who furnishes the alcohol, and you could be held legally responsible for your guests’ behavior after they leave your party.
Consider holding parties at a restaurant or facility with professional alcohol servers who have been trained in responsible alcohol service practices. Take steps to limit your liability.
If you get a DUI on Halloween night, or any night, don’t let one mistake ruin your life. Call Tangi Carter immediately at (601) 544-1313.
