Holiday Drinking Driving Tip – Wishing You a Happy Christmas!

Dear friends: 

sxmas_100-101

With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends and family about drinking and driving. As you may know, some people have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a “social session”, or out with friends. Well, two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several beers followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly, I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit.

That’s when I did something that I’ve never done before – I took a cab home.

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.

This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don’t know where I got it, and now that it’s in my garage, I don’t know what to do with it…

  5. Needing to write more tickets to make his quota, the deputy parked outside a popular bar close to closing time. Sure enough, 20 minutes before closing time a man staggers out of the bar, fumbles around with his keys dropping them twice, and unsuccessfully tries 2 other cars before finding his. Minutes go by before he starts his car as other patrons beginto leave.
    The man guns his engine, turns the wipers on and off several times, and blares the radio. More people leave but the deputy is now commited to catching this guy. Finally he starts to move as the bar empties and turns out the lights. The guy slowly enters the roadway and the deputy hits the lights and pulls him over. .
    The man calmly asks what’s the problem and shows no sign of inebriation!
    The deputy stammers and says he certainly appeared drunk. The man laughs and says… Oh I’m not drunk, I’m just the designated decoy!

  6. You did get me! That was hilarious. I do always take a cab home from parties and my friends have commented on the cost over the years. Now that many of them have been pulled over, I am sure I spent a lot less than they did to pay tickets, handle court costs and hire attorneys.

  7. OK, here’s something I can ‘fess up, as George is now departed these several years, when he got drunk and drove, mistaking a large tree trunk for his garage door….

    Anyhow, when sober he was an excellent lawyer, and a genial, witty Irish-American, who lived on the hill in Richmond, CA. One time he decided to visit friends in Placerville, who owned a small gold mine and a small bar/tavern. After visiting the mine, they visited the bar; then George decided to return to Richmond, although his friends wanted him to stay overnight.

    Well, on his return he was caught speeding [but not inebriated] by a County Sheriff officer, who told George to follow him to the county jail, which George obediently did. At the station the Sheriff went in to fill out a report, taking George’s keys w/him, so George couldn’t drive off before the citation was completed.

    Being still quite tipsy, George saw there were keys left in the Sheriff’s car, and decided that he’d use it to return home…. By the time TWO sheriff’s car caught up w/him, he was halfway home. This time he was taken back to spend the night in jail, and not allowed to drive for two months. It did set his lawyer career back a wee bit, but not much: he just took the time off and went drinking red wine w/nearby friends to whose house he could walk.
