Avoid drunk driving in your Nebraska college town

Fight Your DUI Charges. Contact Us Today.

The last thing you need while trying to make the grade in college is to call home and tell your family that a police officer arrested you and that you're facing drunk driving charges. Not only might your family be disappointed to hear such news, your college career could be at risk as well, especially if you attend a school where you signed an honor code agreement, promising not to consume alcohol on or off campus.

Even if your Nebraska college allows alcohol on campus, things would likely get a lot worse before they'd get better if police accuse you of DUI. Failing a college exam may impede your journey toward a diploma; failing a field sobriety test may get you kicked out of school and placed behind bars. Just as it's easier to score well on an academic test if you study hard, you may be able to avoid alcohol-related legal problems by arming yourself with information before your next party.

Ways to avoid DUI

Let's say it's Friday night and you're looking forward to free time with your friends after a long, hard week of classes. You're looking forward to some rest and relaxation and you don't want there to be any problems, especially while driving home. The list that follows provides useful ideas if your social event includes alcoholic beverages:

  • Drinking on an empty stomach is never a good idea. Food slows alcohol absorption into your bloodstream. If you're going to drink, make sure you're eating as well.
  • The best way to arrive home safely after drinking alcohol is to ask someone else to drive you there.
  • If you're not going to completely abstain, you may want to stop drinking several hours before it's time to leave the party.
  • It's important to drink plenty of water or other non-alcoholic beverages.
  • If avoiding legal problems and a collision is your main goal, then the ratio of non-alcoholic drinks should far outweigh the ones you have that contain alcohol.

Every Nebraska motorist is obligated to adhere to all traffic safety regulations and laws pertaining to alcohol. A lot of college students enjoy partying with friends. If you're one of them, make sure you lower your risk for alcohol-related problems as much as possible by making responsible choices about drinking and driving. If you do face DUI charges, you can reach out for support to try to avoid conviction.
