Dont Drink and Drive This Memorial Day Weekend
Posted on behalf of Gordon & Partners on May 22, 2015 in Auto Accidents
With record-breaking numbers of people set to travel by car this holiday weekend, party-goers and families alike will crowd Florida roads throughout the weekend.
Whether you're hitting the road or staying nearby to celebrate the holiday, Gordon & Donor wants to remind you not to take the wheel if you've been drinking.
Drunk driving is a serious crime with even more severe consequences for the thousands of people who die in drunk driving accidents each year. Those who do survive are often left with long-lasting injuries that can impact their future.
If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driver, contact the drunk driving accident attorneys at Gordon & Partners. We have helped countless Florida families recover damages from drunk driving accidents and are standing by ready to help you, too.
Here are a few tips to keep you safe this weekend and to ensure you have a smooth, uninterrupted and fun holiday.
- Dont drink and drive. Its as simple as that.
- If you do plan to have a drink, plan ahead and make sure that you have alternative transportation ready or arrange for a designated driver.
- If you didn't plan ahead and enjoyed a few too many drinks, AAA is offering its free Tow-To-Go services for everyone, even if you arent a member, from Friday evening through 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. To take advantage of the service, call 855-2-TOW-2-GO. The best part is that they'll take your car with you so you dont have to leave it at the party over night!
- You can expect law enforcement to be out in droves, including several DUI traffic stops, in an effort to keep the roads safe. If you have a drink, save yourself the trouble and dont drink and drive.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a drunk driving accident, call a personal injury lawyer from our law firm today. While a lawsuit will not bring back a lost loved one or reverse the severe injuries sustained during a drunk driving accident, the auto accident lawyers at Gordon & Partners have your best interests at heart and will work tirelessly to get you the justice you deserve.
