Los Angeles is one of the party capitals of the world. From fine dining to dance clubs, Los Angeles has a place for almost any personality on any budget. From rooftop bars to street level taverns, the drinks pour easy and taste delicious. Drinking is a great American past time. It’s a social norm to go have a drink after work or when celebrating. And even though you know that there are cabs, Ubers, and Lyfts, sometimes you are stuck with hard decisions.
Scenario: You go to a friend’s birthday party being thrown at a bar a few blocks from your work. You drive to work every day. The idea is for you to drive home after work and then catch an Uber or Lyft to the party. At work, your boss comes over and hands you three more hours of paperwork and it’s 4:30 pm. The party starts at 7:00 pm. You won’t have time to drive home and take a cab. You walk to the bar from work and have a few drinks with your friends. After the few drinks, you walk back to work and continue to your car. The walk sobered you up, or so you thought, but that’s not what the breathalyzer says when the cop pulled you over.
Driving under the influence is against the law. The scenario could have turned out much different. Maybe you drove drunk and hit a pedestrian severely hurting them. Maybe you hit someone’s property. Maybe you hit another car while driving. Any of these scenarios means that you put yourself and others in danger.
