Every year, there is an increased push throughout Missouri and the rest of America to combat drunk driving during spring break. Spring break usually means that more young people are vacationing and on the road. Drinking is often involved, and there is a high probability of someone getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.

However, getting behind the wheel while drunk on spring break doesn't have to be inevitable. There are steps that one can take to protect themselves from potential dangers.

One obvious way young people can protect themselves is to simply not drink. This means taking a proactive stance, perhaps offering to be the designated driver throughout the entire vacation.

If abstaining from alcohol does not seem realistic, another idea is to not drive. This is a simple rule that can go a long way in keeping young people safe. It's important to remember that even a little bit of alcohol could impair one's ability to drive.

Another option is to leave the automobile in a designated parking area. A lot of spring break destinations have public transportation and taxis at the ready. Young people may opt to avail themselves of public transportation as opposed to getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.

If a person is accused of driving while under the influence, they may benefit from the assistance of a criminal defense attorney. In all 50 states, the legal limit for driver intoxication is .08 blood alcohol concentration. However, one could be charged with a DUI even if their blood alcohol content is lower than .08. A criminal defense attorney might be able to help a client charged with a DUI or DWI.
