Drink Responsibly on Halloween

Drink Responsibly on Halloween

Summer came and went and we are now headed into fall. This means that Halloween is almost here! For kids, this means trick-or-treating to get as much candy as they can possibly carry. For adults, it means going out to parties to have a good time. If there is alcohol at these parties, than a person needs to drink responsibly.

Around most holidays where drinking is involved, people are bound to see an increase in DUI checkpoints around town. This is due to the fact that officers know that people will be drinking more and therefore they will put more effort into keeping those who have consumed alcohol off of the road.

A similar thing happens around holidays such as Memorial Day and Labor. However, it is infinitely more important on Halloween. On this particular holiday, kids are out roaming the dark streets in search of candy. In this instance, a drunk driver is far more likely to hit a child, or group of kids. That is something that no one wants to deal with.

DUI checkpoints may seem intimidating, but they are nothing to worry about. A driver just needs to wait for an officer to wave them forward, answer a few quick questions, and so long as the officer doesn’t suspect that the driver has been drinking, they will be cleared to proceed on to their destination.

If you are planning on going out and drinking for Halloween, be sure to do so responsibly. This means having a designated driver, or using some sort of rideshare service such as a taxi, Uber, or Lyft. Doing this will not only keep you safe from getting a ticket or in an accident, it will also help keep trick-or-treaters safe as well.
