Houston Criminal Attorneys Trichter & Murphy Explain How to Avoid DWI Charges in the Holiday Season

Trichter & Murphy encourage you to stay safe this holiday season by making an effort to avoid DWI charges.

    HOUSTON, TX, December 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The holidays are a wonderful time to celebrate with friends and families. Trichter & Murphy, a Houston criminal defense law firm, wishes to help you enjoy the holiday season without risking DWI charges with these tips.

Stay Safe This Season
The easiest and most effective way to avoid DWI charges this holiday season is to simply abstain from drinking if you plan to drive. If this is not a possibility, the Houston DWI lawyers at Trichter & Murphy recommend that you arrange alternative transportation, either by way of a designated driver or by hiring a taxi or car service to take you to and from the event.

If you are driving to a party where you plan to drink, give your keys to a responsible person who will not allow you to drive while you are intoxicated. Avoid drinking any alcohol for a minimum of an hour before you drive. If possible, take a portable breath test before you ask for your keys to get an idea if you map be legally safe to drive.

Trichter & Murphy reminds you that portable breathalyzers can be easily purchased online or at your local electronics superstore. However, the Houston criminal defense attorneys also wish to note that these devices can only provide you with a basic reading which may or may not match the one a police officer's device would offer.

Party hosts should also take steps to discourage their guests from drinking and driving. Offer guests reminders to drink responsibly in the form of posters and wrist bands. Limit the number of drinks each guest can have and stop serving an hour before the party is due to end. Have several monitors around the party who are watching for anyone who is overly intoxicated and do not allow these people to leave until they will be able to drive safely.
