As Super Bowl Sunday approaches, the Law Offices of Thomas Wallin would like to remind everyone to be safe and always designate a sober driver. Arresting agencies have received significant grants to fund checkpoints and saturation patrols nearly every weekend. If you plan to attend a party or watch the game from a bar remember that you may be waiting a significant amount of time for a taxi cab. Too many times people get fed up with waiting and decide to drive home. To avoid this, take advantage of AAA's Tipsy Tow service which is being offered in Northern California Super Bowl Sunday or download the new Uber app which connects you to a driver in your location. The app will allow you to pay via credit card, give the driver your exact location and even tell you how far away the driver is from your spot.
Super Bowl Sunday notoriously results in a high number of DUI arrests. Many people assume that they can consume a significant amount and then drive home after a "cooling off" period. It is always advisable to not drink and drive. If you are arrested for driving under the influence the first call you should make is to a qualified DUI attorney.
