Murphy’s Law

Murphy’s Law states that “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” The key to avoiding an arrest is to take preventative measures. For example, always plan ahead if you know you are going to be drinking alcohol. Drinking and driving is not illegal, but drinking to the point where you are intoxicated and driving at or above the legal limit is 0.08 is a crime.

Another tip is to always check that your car’s equipment is always working properly. Driving without a headlight, or a tail light, or without the rear license plate light, will allow a police officer to stop your car and question you. It is also important to have valid insurance for the car you are driving, even if you do not own the car. If you drive a car without insurance or with non-functioning equipment, it is your fault!

Keep in mind that alcohol consumption is involved in approximately 40% of most committed crimes. Never break the law, but if you do, avoid breaking more than one at a time.
