new years in Charleston

Ringing in the New Year is one of the most exciting times of the year! Champagne, dancing, singing, and socializing, all wrapped up into one night is always a blast. Here, at Uricchio Law Firm, we’d like to wish you a happy and safe New Year’s. We’d also like to provide you with just a few safety tips to avoid personal injury and DUI charges this New Year’s Eve.

See below:

  • Have a designated driver: If you’re going to be traveling during New Year’s Eve and New Year’s be sure to have a designated driver planned out for the evening. This decreases your chances and the chances of other drives from being involved in a motor vehicle accident, as well as eliminates your chances of being charged with a DUI. Also, there is often a much higher amount of police surveying the roads for drunk drivers.
  • Try to stay off the roads as much as possible: Even if you have a designated driver for yourself, you cannot prevent drunk drivers and careless drivers from causing an accident with your vehicle. When you stay off the roads as much as possible, you automatically reduce your chances of being involved in a motor vehicle accident.
  • Have a plan and stick to it: Before you go out for the night, decide who you will be going with, where you will be going, and what the environment will be like at your destination(s). Always stay with the friends you went to the party or bar with, especially if you are unfamiliar with the other individuals attending. Watch out for yourself and for your friends and never take a drink from an unfamiliar person. A rule of thumb is to always watch your drink being made and never lose sight of it from point A (the bar) to point B (your hand).

Stay safe and have a wonderful New Year’s!
