Caution and Cheer This Time of Year
May 11, 2021
Watching the snow fall outside the window of our new office (yes we’re excited about the new location), the flurries symbolize the wonder of this time of year, but also, as they begin to stick to the ground, the danger this season can bring. We, at Grover Law Firm, encourage you to be safe this holiday season. Especially during this time of year, when roads can be treacherous, don’t let your loved ones drink and drive.
Police can be expected to be out in full force; particularly around New Year’s Eve. Follow us on Twitter: GroverLawFirm, for the latest updates on checkpoints and saturation patrols.
As a party host, remember that serving alcohol to minors can result in criminal charges. Some states even hold hosts liable for accidents that their drunk guests cause. Keep your pets in secure location away from loud and rowdy guests. You can find more about your legal duties to your guests on one of our previous blogs.
As a party-goer, remember what you were taught in college and never leave your drink unattended, especially if you are at a public party or bar. It’s smart to go in groups to large holiday parties. Always have a designated driver before you leave for the party. The legal limit is 0.08 blood alcohol content. It doesn’t take many drinks for an adult to exceed this limit.
A DUI can be a glaring blemish on a resume, think about your future before getting behind the wheel.
Even for sober drivers, roads can be tricky to navigate this time of year. Give yourself extra travel time, and make sure to completely remove snow and ice from your vehicle before venturing out on the road. Full visibility is critical in dangerous conditions. If you or a loved one is injured in a collision, give us a call immediately at 913-432-1000, or visit our website for more information.
If you end up in legal trouble, make sure our number is saved in your cell phone. It’s also a good idea to have the number of a cab company saved in your phone so you can make that quick call for a sober driver.
Have a safe and happy holidays!
