As a Denver DUI Attorney, I have been a fan of drink delivery services for a number of years, because of their ability to reduce DUIs, and am excited to see the industry finally catching on. Through services like drizly.com (available in Denver) and drinkos.com, featured here, that delivery alcohol to your doorstep, the industry is rapidly seeing a new way to meet its customer’s needs. These companies work like this, you place an order over a phone, online, or through an online app, and then alcohol is delivered to your doorstep.
One of the primary benefits of these services is that it keeps people off the streets who may have had something to drink. For example, imagine you are drinking beer and watching college football on Saturday. Then imagine that you run out of beer. Under the usual scenario, you might get in your car and drive to the liquor store. Unfortunately you will be committing a crime at this point. If an officer pulls you over, you will have to spend the rest of the day in detox or worse. Additionally, you run the risk of committing more serious crimes like vehicular assault/homicide.
With these new companies, you simply order your alcohol from an app and it is delivered to your door. Not only do you not have to risk the criminal penalties associated with drinking and driving but you don’t even have to miss a minute of the big game.
I hope more people will begin using these services so that we can reduce the number of DUIs in Denver and improve the safety of our city.
