Designated Download

Getting around has never been easier than it is today. We have taxi services, ride sharing, and now there are even phone apps that can bring a car to your location with the simple press of a button. With these kinds of conveniences at our fingertips, you would think that incidences of drunk driving would have decreased drastically. However, they have not.

 

Judge Micheal Cicconetti of Ohio seems to have noticed this as well. Already well known for his unorthodox sentences, he has recently added another quirky penalty to his roster of punishments for drunk drivers. He is requiring that all convicted drivers download a ride app to their phones as part of the sentence.

He says he got the idea after dealing with a repeat offender who apparently only seemed to live just a few blocks away from the bar he frequented. He argues that the cost of a Lyft or Uber is far less than a possible DUI. Judging from the common penalties that accompany a DUI conviction, we wholeheartedly agree with his assertion.

Uber or Lyft may be able to save you from a drunk driving charge, but once they have you, it’s often far too late. Don’t let a fickle judge ruin your future, get yourself a Former Prosecutor today!
