It is never a good idea to drink and drive in Georgia or anywhere at any time of the year. However, now that Christmas and New Year’s Eve/Day will soon be upon us, it’s a great time to remind everyone to act responsibly during a night of drinking.
What about work-related celebrations with drinking?
It is certainly not uncommon for workplaces to have Christmas parties to celebrate these occasions, and they often include alcohol. Therefore, it’s up to you to plan accordingly to avoid getting on the wheel if you are not ok to drive.
Additionally, some individuals may have a hard time over the holidays, and can be more down over the Christmas season. When people are feeling down often they consume more alcoholic beverages than normal to cope. Then, there are also those who will go out to parties, clubs, or bars, drink and have a good time to bring in 2023.
There is nothing wrong with celebrating the season responsibly. However, if people aren’t responsible while this could lead to drinking and driving,” says Marietta DUI Attorney Roland Castellanos.
