DUI Prevention Tip of the Day

My DUI prevention tip of the day was inspired by a new case I am handling. The tip of the day is to avoid using your cell phone while driving after having a beer.  The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration has produced numerous studies on cell phone usage and it's impact on driving.  Combine a little alcohol and talking on the cell phone and it equals some back driving.  Bad driving results in a traffic stop which might lead you to a jail cell. Here is a short list of Rob McKinney's tips on cell phone usage after a drink;

  • Turn your cell phone off while driving.
  • Don't answer if it is on.
  • Lock it in your trunk so you won't be tempted.  (This is my favorite).
  • Never text while driving.  It's against Tennessee law anyway and could lead to a traffic stop on this use alone.

As always, please drink responsibly.
