Things to Avoid for Memorial Weekend

Broadmoor Bail Bond Store

Memorial Weekend is fast approaching, and in order to allow yourself to stay out as long as you wish, and drink as much as you want, while remaining safe of course, we want you to arrange your transportation to and from your shindig ahead of time. You have plenty of options: Lyft, Uber, taxi, public transit, or a designated driver from a friend or family member.

By arranging safe transportation and not choosing to drink and drive yourself, you:

  • Avoid a DUI
  • Avoid injury
  • Avoid a fatality
  • Avoid fines
  • Avoid jail time

That is quite a list to consider. So much can go so wrong when someone gets behind the wheel while drunk. It can quickly turn a fun Memorial Weekend into a very, very bad one.

Do not worry, Broadmoor Bail Bond Store will be working 24/7, right through Memorial Weekend...

Sometimes the police will post checkpoint locations beforehand so that the public can be knowledgeable of where they are; other times, they will not announce the locations.

When approaching a checkpoint, slow down and stop as the officer signals you to. They will ask where you are going, where you are coming from, if you have been drinking, and how much...
