DWI: Six Tips For Avoiding A Conviction This New Year's Eve

Categories: Courts, Crime

Be careful out there
New Year's Eve is upon us, and that means drinking, parties, celebration, and drinking some more. If getting behind the wheel after a few beers and a champagne toast is your style, be prepared to deal with the horde of cops out there to catch you.

"Even prosecutors like to wave the day around like a flag," says Tyler Flood, a Houston DWI attorney. "They'll say, 'And it happened on New Year's Eve.' Like you had to be drunk if you were driving on New Year's Eve."

We've long been a fan of Flood's work in the courtroom, amazed at the "not guilty" verdicts he brings in. But that, of course, will cost you. To help keep you away from the pen light and breathalyzer, and a fat attorney's fee, Hair Balls presents some tips for not getting a DWI conviction.
