“Jersey Shore” 2013 Spring Break on MTV

 

You heard right, the Jersey Shore is on the most popular destinations for Spring Break 2013.  Just like MTV directly promoted past spring break hot spots in Florida, Texas, and Mexico, MTV’s hit show has now spurred a new spring break dream location.  And we can likely expect the same things from Jersey Shore Spring Break as the MTV spring break hot sports in the past: fun, freedom, and excessive drinking.

 

The Jersey Shore bars and clubs have been gearing up for an influx of spring breakers that will soon be descending on the seaside town. Also gearing up for spring break?  New Jersey law enforcement, who are planning on expanding patrol and coverage zones during the spring break season.  They want to make sure spring breakers have a safe, as well as fun, experience.  The police department is concerned about the risks of date rape, alcohol related violence, alcohol poisoning, and drunk driving.

 

The DUI penalties in New Jersey are stiff compared to many other parts of the country. A DUI arrest in New Jersey can cause a fine up to $1,000 and a three month license suspension.  If you are above a BAC of .1; however, add 30 days in jail and the loss of your license for up to a year onto those consequences.

 

If you are one of the thousands of young adults planning to party at the Jersey Shore for your spring break, be sure to be responsible while also having a good time. Spring Bread carries along some serious risks. To help avoid the serious DUI consequences while on spring break at the Jersey Shore, here is some useful advice.

– Do not driver drunk under any circumstances!  If you have seen the show, you know they have plenty of cabs around!  Use one!  Or else use a sober driver, public transportation, decide to walk, or find another place to crash for the nice in walking distance.

– Limit your drinking and pace yourself if you do plan on driving home.  One drink for each hour is a good rule of thumb, but it is also wise to stop drinking a minimum of 2 hours before you plan to drive.  A cold shower or coffee will no sober you up despite popular mythology. The only thing that sobers you up is less alcohol in your system.

– Mix your drinks yourself so you know exactly how much alcohol you are consuming.  Do not drink anything mixed ahead of time, and avoid any mixers with carbonation as they can increase the speed alcohol enters your blood stream.

– Have a back-up plan.  If you planned on driving but had too much, find another option to get home.

Don’t let a DUI turn your fun time on the Jersey Shore into a negative experience with unfortunate legal and personal consequences.  Make and stick to a plan, and take steps to keep yourself safe this spring break.
