Avoid Facing DUI Charges With Tips From Experienced Lexington Defense Attorneys, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

Being charged with a DUI is an extremely serious situation, with major penalties that could cost you thousands of dollars, your family, your job, and even put you in jail. If you've been arrested for drinking and driving, the criminal defense attorneys at Lexington, KY's Anggelis & Gordon, PLLC will help, but it's best to avoid that situation in the first place.

To avoid being pulled over for a DUI, these lawyers recommend the following tips:

  • Using A Car Service: Whether you need to call a cab, use Uber, or some other ride-sharing service, these lawyers recommend letting someone else drive you home if you've been drinking. No matter how long the ride may be, it will be considerably less than the consequences of a DUI charge.
  • Use A Designated Driver: Having a member of your party abstain from alcohol so they can drive everyone home safely is a time-tested method for avoiding a DUI charge.
  • Drink At Home: Socializing with your friends doesn't necessarily mean meeting at a bar away from home. Have your friends over to your house and serve alcohol, knowing that if anyone has too much to drink you can provide them with a safe place to sleep.

Not only will these tactics help you avoid a DUI charge, but they'll also protect the lives and well-beings of you and everyone else on the road. In the end, any measure you take will be better than facing a DUI charge or being responsible for someone else's injuries.
