Police agencies in South Florida will be out in full force, specifically targeting DUI and other alcohol-related offenses.
Whether you are celebrating on South Beach, Downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or West Palm Beach, expect a large police presence. DUI Checkpoints may also be conducted.
With an abundance of ride-sharing apps and other options to choose from, there is no reason to risk a DUI. If you are going to be drinking, don't even take a chance. Just the smell of alcohol on your breath may be enough for a police officer to arrest you for DUI.
DUIs are a major headache. They cost lots of money, time, and the loss of your driver's license.
If you can manage to avoid driving, do it. But if you find yourself in an unfortunate situation, give me a call.
Wishing you a safe New Year's Eve and a peaceful, prosperous, and positive 2019!
