Don’t Let an OUI Ruin Your Summer Fun

Memorial Day is almost here. It is the unofficial start of summer and outdoor living in New England. To celebrate perhaps you are attending or hosting the first cookout of the summer. You’re looking forward to steaks, burgers & dogs, and kebabs on the grill, good friends to share them with and cold beers and frosty margaritas to toast the summer season.

Don’t let yourself or your friends get carried away with the fun. Drinking and driving has serious consequences. Holiday weekends are notorious for police roadblocks that check for drivers who are over the legal limit. Read some common questions about OUI/DUI here.

Make sure you have a designated driver or offer to be one. If you are hosting, make sure your friends head home safely. Find them a sober driver or call a cab or ride sharing service. Don’t let an OUI ruin your summer fun before it begins. Make sure everyone makes safe choices.

If you or a family member or friend do get stopped for an OUI over Memorial Day weekend – or anytime – call or text us. Contant Law – (617) 227-8383.

Graduation Parties: Celebrate in Moderation

You are celebrating a Graduation. It’s a big deal; it’s taken years to get here. All that hard work deserves a celebration. When it comes to graduation parties though, you need to remember the old adage, “All things in moderation.” Those big backyard parties that last all day and into the night are loads of fun. Friends from a lifetime come to share in the joy, there’s lots of wonderful food, and the booze flows freely. That is where the moderation comes in! No one wants the celebration of years of hard work to end in a OUI or worse. (Read about the driver’s license consequences of an OUI.)

Know your limits. Don’t be afraid to tell friends – particularly the younger ones – that they are reaching their limits. Don’t be shy about ensuring friends have sober designated drivers to take the keys. An intoxicated friend may grumble in the moment, but they will thank you when they are sober. Making sure that everyone gets home from the party safely, ensures that all the memories of the day will be joyful ones.
