I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has declared a National Impaired Driving Crackdown Labor Day Weekend program. It’s a rather long weekend, stretching from August 20th through September 6th. So now would be a good time to take a few advised precautions:
• If you’re gonna get smashed with friends, pick someone from Utah who isn’t gonna get smashed and vote that guy the limo driver for the evening.
• If you’re already smashed, and haven’t thought ahead by making friends with someone from Utah, call a taxi, take a bus, or text a friend or family member who you strongly suspect isn’t also smashed or judgmental about other people’s vomit inside their car. Alternatively, call anyone from Utah.
• If you’re on the other side of the equation during these farewell-to-summer danger days — that is, if you’re NOT gonna get smashed — take pre-emptive action, and when you go out, go out in a Hummer or a Mack truck.
Good luck, and hope to see you on the other side of summer.
