Halloween may look a little different this year with Covid-19 precautions in place, but spooky season celebrations are expected to continue. With Halloween taking place on a Saturday, with a full moon, frights will take place, but on a smaller scale than in typical years. Covid-19 has changed the way we celebrate holidays, but this one stings a little more due to the social aspect of Halloween and people growing tired of pandemic precautions. Skipping the big Halloween bash this year may help you avoid a DUI by taking it easier than usual.
Stay Home and Avoid DUII Arrest on Halloween
The best way to avoid a DUII arrest on Halloween is to stay home, which also helps prevent the spread of the coronavirus. If you decide to opt-out of attending a traditional Halloween party or a public celebration, this may be the year to have a scary movie marathon at home. Or, Bend Roots Revival has a virtual music festival option to keep you in the party spirit all weekend long.

Plan Ahead to Avoid a Halloween DUII
Despite it being a unique year (to say the least), Halloween celebrations will still be taking place throughout Central Oregon. It’s important to take the necessary precautions and planning to avoid a Halloween DUII arrest. If you plan on drinking, don’t plan on driving. Charge your phone before you leave the house and make sure you have Lyft or Uber downloaded. Save the number for a local cab company in your address book, so you can easily call at the end of the night. Choose a designated driver among your friends and make sure they stick to it, so you can all get home safe.
Remember, whatever the cost of an Uber at 12am, it will be far less expensive than a DUII or worse consequences of driving drunk.
