Be Safe on St. Patrick’s Day by Avoiding a DUI in Sacramento and Folsom

St. Patrick’s Day represents a significant increase in drunk-driving fatalities according to stats from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). And one of the biggest increases in drunk driving arrests is coming from college students in the Sacramento area. To help with this rising trend Safe Rides offers a program that provides free, safe, and confidential rides home to the students, staff, and faculty of Sac State.

The Safe Rides Program is designed to prevent incidents related to drinking and driving that lead to accidents and DUI/DWI arrests. Safe Rides operates from September through May and all you need is a valid One Card.

Avoiding a DUI is Not That Hard to Do

The easiest way to avoid a DUI is to have a designated driver because the police will be out in full force on St. Patrick’s Day in the greater Sacramento and Folsom area. If you can’t find a designated driver spend the money on a cab ride home. This is the best way to save yourself lots of money in the long run by avoiding a DUI arrest entirely. Don’t play the odds game and lose!

Find Sacramento DUI Checkpoints

While it is best to not drink and drive entirely you can also protect yourself by checking on DUI checkpoints in the Sacramento and Folsom area. The DUI checkpoint text messages and email location alerts can be very helpful and allow you to further protect yourself from getting a DUI in Sacramento or Folsom, CA.

Client Testimonials

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

Matt H. Testimonial

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

It is hard to put into words the care and dedication that I received from the Tiemann’s. They have been here for me every step of the way and were always available when I had questions or concerns. My husband and I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us and our family. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and time you have put into my case, we greatly appreciate it and your friendship. We highly recommend this firm and will always be thankful for everything they have done. Thank you so much again, Kim

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
