- Do not bring your vehicle keys with you;
- Plan a safe way back to your home before Christmas cocktails start;
- Have San Diego DUI attorney Rick Mueller’s phone number handy just in case: 1800 THE LAW DUI;
- If you’re drunk, call a taxi, sober buddy or family member, or use public transportation;If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, call San Diego area DUI cops – Call 911; and
- “RUOK” If you believe someone has had too much to drink, they probably have. Help him or her make other ways to get home without being arrested for a San Diego DUI.
