Avoid a Thanksgiving DUI!

If you’re like most people, your Thanksgiving holiday starts on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve and the celebrations last through Sunday. That is, unless you work in retail and “Black Friday” starts on Thanksgiving at your work and your holiday is cut short.

For the rest of us, the alcohol can start flowing as early as the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, and we spend the next four days saying thanks, stuffing ourselves silly, and enjoying friends and family.

So you don’t let a Thanksgiving DUI ruin your celebrations, follow these tips:

1. Be on the lookout for DUI checkpoints.
Since we have the Internet, we can look for DUI checkpoints before we drive straight into them unintentionally. Remember, Orange County law enforcement are already preparing for drunk drivers this holiday weekend, so look online for checkpoints before hitting the road.

2. Nominate a designated driver before celebrations.
One of the great things about the holidays, there’s usually an abundance of designated drivers. Does your mom or Aunt Ethel hate to drink? Assign them as designated drivers for the evening! Just make sure you don’t choose a DD who will secretly drink!

3. Prescriptions and drinking don’t mix.
Lots of medications don’t mix well with alcohol, especially drugs like Xanax. So, even if you have just one drink, if you mix it with your meds, it can be like having six cocktails depending on the medicine. If you’re on a medication that says not to mix with alcohol, make sure you don’t take them at the same time.

4. Get a ride.
If your Uncle Joe’s offensive jokes made you drink into an oblivion, don’t reach for the keys. Instead, call Uber, Lyft, or a cab. Even if they’ve jacked up their prices due to the holiday, it’s a lot cheaper than a DUI!

5. No money for a ride? Call AAA!
If you’re worried about not having money for a ride, check out AAA’s Holiday Safe Ride Program. It offers free towing for both members and non-members in select areas throughout the nation.
