With Labor Day weekend quickly approaching, you might be looking forward to family celebrations or some other holiday-related event. Many people choose to drink alcohol during the holiday weekend, but some make the poor decision to operate a vehicle when they are over the legal limit. Drunk driving is a serious threat throughout the year, but the likelihood of being involved in a crash may be even greater during certain holidays. At Callahan & Blaine, we know how devastating drunk driving wrecks can be for victims and those they love in Orange County, and across California.
