Drinking and Driving

Alright, not trying to sound like a nagging mother, but if ya'll go out tonight and get all tore up, don't drive! with the obvious danger aside, tonight is the #1 night for DUIs. like i said i'm not trying to nag, i'll definately be not right, but i'm not driving. Have fun and happy st. patty's day!

Great advice!!
Too many people are killed or seriously injured in alchohol related accidents. Make sure that if you don't have a designated driver, call a cab. Have fun, but, be smart about it.

I agree! We WILL be out tonight, but I won't be drinking, so I just need to watch out for the 'other' guys.

Tonight's the #1 night though? Hmm, I had it figured for New Years Eve or the night before Thanksgiving around here. Doesn't make it any less good advice though!

We might be going out. I'll be the one driving because I don't drink at all.

Know your city ordinances as well as any state drinking laws. I did a ride along with St. Paul PD and caught a guy with open bottle drinking while walking. It's illegal to openly drink alcohol while walking down the street in St. Paul.

This is all wise advice, because whatever tolerance levels the police may have towards inebriated (sp?) people will not be present tonight!

If you drive even a little tipsy in Illinois, you'll get nailed. They will put you in jail and impound your car.

the police in nyc use the red lights near the entrances to the tunnels and bridges out of the city to walk up to cars and take a whiff of the drivers. that way it's totally random, no profiling or prejudice of any kind. and no possible cause for questioning is needed. you're stuck at the light and they're just doing a "registration and inspection check". if they're stinkin of booze, they're on their way to the tombs for the night.

you'd have to be stupid to try and drink and drive in nyc today. if you do, be sure to use the 11th ave entrance to the lincoln tunnel... there's much nicer cops there, and the paddy wagons are cleaner...
