DWI: Six Tips For Avoiding A Conviction This New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is upon us, and that means drinking, parties, celebration, and drinking some more. If getting behind the wheel after a few beers and a champagne toast is your style, be prepared to deal with the horde of cops out there to catch you.

"Even prosecutors like to wave the day around like a flag," says Tyler Flood, a Houston DWI attorney. "They'll say, 'And it happened on New Year's Eve.' Like you had to be drunk if you were driving on New Year's Eve."
