In this special edition of “The Law & You,” attorneys Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli offer safety tips for the Labor Day weekend.
Dave Kuharchik: The unofficial end of summer is here. Labor Day weekend is upon us and we’re going to talk about safe celebrating this week with attorneys Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli. So, guys, this is it. It’s been a summer that we spent a lot of time with rain and humidity and here we go with one last gasp, so to say. I know you always remind people when they’re celebrating over the next couple of days to really think twice about what you are doing.
Ed Ciarimboli: Dave, it’s also the last day that Greg can wear his Southern gentleman tan suit.
Dave: That’s even more concerning.
Ed: He’s very sad about it.
Greg Fellerman: I like this suit. I get a lot of compliments.
Dave: Yeah, there’s no stretching out about this so we’ll garner him a little extra time tonight.
Ed: Absolutely. Don’t drink and drive. Honestly, the penalties are so severe. I mean, we can’t tell you how many cases, calls that we get, as a result of people that have been involved in very significant and serious car and boating crashes over the Labor Day weekend as a result of driving under the influence. There really is no reason to do it anymore. I mean you got Uber, you got Lyft, you got taxis. You shouldn’t be behind the wheel of a boat or a jet ski if you had anything to drink. Just really don’t do it. There’s really nothing else to say except be careful. Use your common sense.
Greg: And here’s a news flash: law enforcement will be out in full force over the weekend, looking for drunk drivers, looking for people who are drinking and driving on a boat. They are actually put into different programs throughout the year for speeding, drinking and driving, boating. So, they put in all kinds of stuff. They’re going to catch you this weekend. No doubt about it, don’t drink and drive. Because you’ll be calling us to find you a criminal defense lawyer.
Ed: They can’t wait to catch you.
Dave: Interesting you mention that we have seen the press releases that they sent to the stations.
Greg: No doubt.
Dave: There are extra patrols out there, so certainly be more aware than ever. And of course, if you are ever in need of legal advice or direction, the guys are glad to help. And don’t forget, results matter with attorneys Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli. Guys, enjoy your Labor Day weekend.
Greg: Thank you, you too.
