How to get home if you’re intoxicated

There may come a point when you realize you've consumed too much alcohol to drive your vehicle home. If this happens, it's best to stay where you are for the time being and consider other modes of transportation.

Here are some of the best ways to get home if you're too drunk to drive:

  • Appoint a designated driver: This is something you need to do before hitting the town. With a designated driver in your group, you never have to worry about the temptation to drive drunk.
  • Public transportation: From a bus to a cab, from a train to Uber or Lyft, there are many options for public transportation. It may cost you a few dollars, but it's much better than taking the risk of driving drunk.
  • Car service for drunk drivers: Depending on where you live and where you're located, you may be able to contact a car service for drunk drivers to take you home. Some of these organizations are nonprofit, thus allowing you to get a ride home free of cost.

There are many reasons to avoid drunk driving at all costs. In addition to increasing the risk of an accident, drunk driving also puts you in the crosshairs of local law enforcement.

A drunk driving arrest has the potential to result in a conviction, which can carry punishments including fines, prison time and a license suspension.

If you're charged with drunk driving, turn your immediate attention to the court process and your legal rights. There are defense strategies you can use to prevent a conviction and the associated punishment.
