Here in Northern California there's no need to drink and drive. There are several options:
Northern California: (800) 222-4357 AAA's Tipsy Tow Free within 10 miles 6:00 PM December 31, 2011 through 6:00 AM January 1, 2012. The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver's home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver's home as long is there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck.

They will be offering their Safe and Sober program from 10 p.m. Saturday, January 31, 2011 through 4 a.m. Sunday, January 1, 2012. Due to the program's popularity, a cap of $35 per ride is in place so you'll need to pay the difference over that amount. For a ride home call the appropriate cab company listed above and tell them the ride is on Berg Injury Lawyers. BTW Kudos to Berg Injury Lawyers. I can tell you right now sponsoring a service like this, not everyday TV Commercials, is what has now made your company memorable to me.
There are safe driving programs set up nationwide so even if Tipsy Tow is not available in your area there's a chance another program is. CLICK HERE to view a nationwide list of both free and paid options to get you home safely and keep everyone else on the road safe over New Year's Eve.

And that's the good news because if you managed to get yourself arrested without injuring or killing an innocent bystander the amount of fines and jail time will be far lower than if you do. And of course there's always the chance you'll injure or kill yourself. IT IS NOT WORTH IT!

Even when you're doing everything right life can turn on a dime and everything you have today, your health, your home, your friends, family and job can be gone in an instant so don't tempt fate and take a risk like driving buzzed or drunk. Please, don't do it. Think of everything you have and everyone you love and call for a ride. Not just on NYE, every day of the year.
BTW, I can afford to help friends with no money for a cab who find themselves stranded because they're too buzzed or drunk to drive (or the person you rode with is no longer safe to drive with) by coming to pick you up. I cannot however, afford to bail you out of jail.
