Don't want to get a DUI over Cinco De Mayo Weekend in California? Cinco de Mayo is a special time to get with good friends and coworkers for Margaritas and fine Mexican cuisine to celebrate California’s rich cultural diversity.

Here's one DUI lawyer's tips found on the website of San Diego County Sheriff's Department:

• Arrange rides home for your friends, family, co‐workers and yourself before drinking begins.

• Identify and provide free non‐alcoholic drinks or other promotional items to the Designated Driver.

• Cut back on the amount of drinks you plan to bring to the party – and provide plenty of food.

• If you see dangerous driving, Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.

“There's no excuse for drunk driving,” proclaims Director of California's Office of Traffic Safety Chris Murphy. “Before heading out for the celebration, just take one minute to designate your sober driver.”
