A Southern California charity is offering $10.00 taxi cab vouchers to holiday celebrators. The Lev Foundation, formed by family and friends of 25-year-old Daniel Levian, who died in 2008 while the passenger in a drunk driver’s car, has given out about 200 vouchers so far.
Michelle Shirin Alfi, Mr. Levian’s cousin, says the voucher program will have done its job if it can keep someone from experiencing the pain her family suffered. The Lev Foundation is providing the taxi vouchers through December on their website.
In Marin County and all places in California a person can be charged with murder if she drives while under the influence or with a prohibited blood alcohol level and causes an accident that kills another person. It is never advisable to drink and drive and partygoers would be wise to find a safe ride home. Taking a cab ride home or using a designated driver is much safer than drinking and driving and far cheaper than facing a DUI prosecution.
If you are convicted of a DUI in Marin County, Oakland or elsewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area you are facing at least 3 years probation on a first offense and up to 6 months in jail. You need to call an experienced aggressive driving under the influence attorney for help.
For more information about driving under the influence charges in San Rafael, or San Francisco, or for a free consultation, call Marin County DUI attorney John Stanko at 415-755-8899, 707-642-8900, or toll free at 1-877-204-8900.
