13 May Why Checkpoints Are a Good Thing for You, the Drunk Driver
Memorial Day is a day when we honor and remember those who have died while serving our country. Here in Southern California, Memorial Day is more popular for bringing a three-day weekend for many students and professionals, and because it is nice and sunny out by this time of year. Memorial Day Weekend becomes a 3-day party and alcohol-heavy weekend immediately after any solemn honoring of course. Californians are not that ungrateful.
Our team at Carlsbad Bail Bond Store would like to remind you all to make wise decisions this Memorial Day weekend. Whether you are partying out, or partying in, watch your alcohol intake, as well as that of your friends and family members. Do not drink and drive. The police are definitely going to have more checkpoints this Memorial Weekend than any other weekend.
Any drivers who happen upon a checkpoint will be directed to the side of the road. The officer will likely ask where you are coming from, where you are going, if you have been drinking, and how much. You may be asked to take a sobriety test of some sort. Best case scenario: the officer will let you drive on to your destination after a very brief stop. Worst case scenario: you will be detained until you sober up. It might be discouraging, but think of it like this. This worst case scenario at the checkpoint is way better than the worst case scenario of all: getting into a fatal accident.
No matter what your plans are for Memorial Day Weekend, please have fun and be safe. We hope we do not get a call from you, but if we do, Carlsbad Bail Bond Store will act quickly to help bail you out of jail.
