Although is long gone, the traffic Police are still reminding drivers that roads are equally as busy, and it is important for motorists to not let their guards down as far as safety driving is concerned. Here are a few important tips to remember in all weather conditions:

* Never drink and drive: If you have been drinking heavily and your blood alcohol level registers above the legal limit, then you could lose your license for a few days.
* Obey the Speed Limit: Speed is one of the major causes for fatalities. Obeying the speed limits and slowing down can greatly reduce the chances of crashed and injuries from taking place.
* Keep those mobile phones aside: Many motorists repeatedly defy the law regarding the use of mobile phones will driving.
* Keep those Seat belts Buckled: All passengers and drivers should wear their seat belts in a securely fastened and properly adjusted manner.
* Slow down or move over: If you find yourself passing an emergency vehicle with its emergency lights on, then it is important to slow down and let the vehicle pass.

In my state a first offense DUI is mandatory loss of license for one year after spending 2 or 3 days in jail. You will then get to spend 3 to 5 thousand dollars in fines, court costs, and attorney fees to possiblely be allowed to drive to work/school and back home. you will still be required to have installed and pay for a breathilizer ignition lock-out with a 0.0 threshold. It was not always like this. I emember in the 1960s thru 1970s a driver could be stopped for suspicion of DUI required to take the walk a line, touch your nose, and recite a tongue twister test. Upon failure the standard proceedure was the officer would lock your vehicle, confiscate your keys, then drive you home. The next day it was up to you to get to the police station, pick-up your keys, snd retrieve your vehicle.
