Happy & Healthy Holiday Season!
Barry and I want to send all our friends and clients our best wishes for a Happy & Healthy Holiday Season!
We also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone, particularly during the holiday season, not to drink and drive. I’m not saying don’t have a drink or two to celebrate the holiday with your friends and family. I’m not a prude, but what I am saying is don’t have a drink and then get behind the wheel of a car.
It is not against the law to have a drink or two and drive, but before you do........................
CONSIDER THESE FACTORS:
I. Local and State Police are significantly increasing the number of DWI checkpoints in the Hudson Valley.
II. Although alcohol has no odor, the flavorings, when combined with the alcohol do.
III. Even one drink can leave you with a strong odor of alcohol coming from your breath.
IV. The Field Sobriety Tests that police give are designed to make sober people appear intoxicated. Just try the walk and turn test, or the one leg stand. Now add freezing temperatures, nerves, high heels, and a multitude of other factors to the equation.
V. The breath test that you will be given to determine your blood alcohol content at the time of operation are inherently unreliable.
VI. Based upon a variety of very real and scientific factors, a person who has consumed just a couple of drinks can blow at a level that would suggest intoxication.
An arrest for DWI is not pretty. It is very frightening. You will be handcuffed, put in a police car, cuffed to a bench at the station. Your fingerprints and mug shot will be taken. You will have to go to court and hire an attorney. A conviction can have a lasting impact on your life.
In short, don’t drink and drive this holiday season.
