Halloween means a fun time for kids as well as adults. If you are going to a Halloween party and plan on drinking, use a taxi, ride-sharing service, or public transportation to get home safely. During this time of year, there are many DUI arrests made across the country, or worst, drunk driving fatalities. Don’t be a statistic! When it comes to driving, even one drink can a drink too many.

Noteworthy Statistics

National Highway Traffic Association (NHTSA) has alarming statistics on the dangers of drunk driving. During the Halloween period 2012-2016, 168 people were killed in drunk driving crashes. Forty-four percent of those killed in crashes involving at least one drunk driver.

Follow the Zero Tolerance Law

A DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated) arrest is serious, no matter where you reside in the country. During this time state and local police are on high alert looking for a motorist who exhibits signs of driving impaired.

Most states have set a 0.08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) legal limit for DUI or DWI. You may still be arrested for drunk driving even if your BAC is at least .02 and under the .08 limit. Zero tolerance law for those under 21 years of age, meaning you can get arrested for a DUI or DWI even if you only consumed the smallest amount of alcohol. You don’t want to end an evening of fun with a drunk driving offense on your record during Halloween or any other time of year.

Enjoy Halloween!

Although you may be a guest at more than one Halloween party this month, there no need for you to be arrested for a DUI in the process. In fact, you can avoid getting a DUI altogether! Consume non-alcoholic beverages only (if you are driving) or use any number of safety apps that are available that determine your location and call a taxi or your designated driver.

At RoadGuard Interlock, we encourage you to have fun but do so responsibly. Please don’t drink and drive.
