Spring training baseball under the warm Arizona sun has been a tradition since 1947. Today, thousands of fans travel from all over the world to the Phoenix area to see 15 professional baseball teams play. For Arizona residents, spring training games is an excuse to leave work early, throw on their baseball caps and drink a beer while enjoying a game of baseball and our beautiful spring weather.
Now is also a time where students look forward to spring break. This week off from their school work and classes sends students into a frenzy each year, and often can lead to excessive drinking. Arizona is a favorite destination each year for students and others on spring break vacations.
If you will be visiting the Phoenix area during the month of March you should make proper arrangements to avoid drinking and driving. Those arrangements could include ordering a taxi/Uber, public transportation, have a designated driver, be the designated driver, or stay within walking distance of where you’re staying or anything else that will prevent you or your travel companions from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcohol. Thousands of people are arrested on suspicion of DUI or a DUI related charge every year in Arizona.
