DWI: Scarier Than Ghosts & Goblins On Halloween

On Behalf of | Oct 20, 2016 | Drunk Driving


Children look forward to Halloween all year for the copious amounts of decadent sweets. On the other hand, the typical person in their 20s or 30s looks forward to Halloween due to its status as one of the biggest party nights of the year, second only to New Year’s Eve.

There’s another group that also looks forward to Halloween: For police departments and state patrolmen, Halloween is like Christmas, a chance to load up the coffers with the proceeds of DWI fines. In fact, there are often hundreds of DWI arrests the week of Halloween.

The consequences of a DWI are long-lasting and far scarier than any ghosts, ghouls or goblins associated with Halloween. They include jail time, expensive fines, the loss of your driver’s license, and increased insurance premiums (if you can get insurance at all).

In other words, the hangover you get from downing too much witches’ brew at a party is tame compared to the hangover you’ll get from a DWI conviction.

How can you avoid becoming another Halloween DWI statistic? Follow these simple tips before, during and after your Halloween party:

  • Plan a sober ride: With designated drivers, taxis, Uber, Lyft, public transportation and your own two feet, there is no excuse to find yourself behind the wheel after a night of partying.
  • Brush up on your wrestling skills: If it takes a drop toe hold or a side headlock to wrestle the keys away from a friend who’s done a few too many body shots, so be it. Your friend will thank you in the morning.
  • Go camping: Yes, sleeping on the floor sucks, but would you rather sleep on the floor of your friend’s living room or sleep on the floor of a cell in the drunk tank? That’s what we thought.

Once you’ve made the decision to play it safe and do the right thing, we have one more tip for you:

  • Have fun! Once you remove the possibility of a DWI – the ultimate buzz kill – Halloween is all about having fun. So throw on a provocative costume, throw back a few drinks, and eat way too much candy.
