Its all about the standard

Spring is on its way, and with it comes the NCAA Basketball Tournament, probably my favorite sporting event. I love the Cinderella teams, the buzzer beaters, the excitement! Then, of course, there are my annual delusions of bracket grandeur. Let’s just say you don’t want my help on brackets…but I do have a tip to share that’s a bit more serious.

It’s the end of the game, and, as you look around, you quickly see first, that you’re the most sober one in your group, and second, that your friends shouldn’t drive. So you step up. What you do next, though, is where folks can make a mistake. Don’t compare yourself to someone who has been drinking as you decide whether you should drive. Compare yourself to someone sober. That’s the standard police use, and it’s all about the standard. So, enjoy the game, absolutely take care of your buddies, just don’t put yourself in harm’s way in the process.

I hope you never need our help, but please keep our number in your phone. If you or someone you believe in has been arrested for a DUI, please call us right away at (503) 223 – 3422. Reynolds Defense Firm – We’re solid, we’re here if you need us, and we are very good at what we do.
