This upcoming weekend is practically a national holiday in the United States. It’s Super Bowl Weekend, and this year it’s the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots battling it out for the title of NFL champions and, with it, the Lombardi Trophy. Many people will drive to their friend’s home or to their local establishment to enjoy some camaraderie and some football — and probably a few drinks as well.

While this is fine in its own right, it’s not fine if the way you cap the night is by driving home. The police know what this weekend entails, after all. They’re not oblivious to the fact that many people drink on Sunday for the Super Bowl.

So with that in mind, there are three things you need to know about this weekend and drunk driving. First of all, just don’t drink and drive. If you are going to a Super Bowl party or viewing event this weekend, make sure you plan a ride to and from the event if you are going to be consuming alcohol.

Secondly, if you make the unfortunate decision to drink and drive, you may get pulled over by the police. If that happens, you need to consult with a criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and interests.

Which leads to the third and final point: if you are in this situation, you should contact Neil S. Ruskin to help you with your criminal case. We will do everything we can to potentially reduce the damage of the charge against you.
