More than most areas of the country, the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania like to enjoy the holidays with good friends, family, and strong drink. It’s a joyous season for reconnections with loved ones and reflections on the past year.
But, regrettably with these celebrations comes more irresponsible drivers on the road under the influence of alcohol.
No one can predict being the victim of a drunk driver, so the Blasi Law Group is here to make sure if you are the victim of an irresponsible driver during this holiday season we’ll seek justice for your injuries and help you get back on your feet in time for the next holiday season. Most importantly, don’t be the drunk driver. If you know you’re going to be drinking make sure you have a designated driver. Remember, the legal limit is .08 in Pennsylvania which can be as little as one drink.
Being caught behind the wheel while under the influence can carry with it a hefty fine, suspension of driver’s license, and even jail time. You don’t want a DUI on your record, and you certainly don’t want to risk hurting other drivers. So, be safe this holiday. If you’ve been drinking hand your keys over to someone who hasn’t been, or find a place to stay.
Happy holidays from all of us at the Blasi Law Group.
