Cucumbers have a long journey before they graduate to relish. Cucumbers are preserved in a solution of vinegar, salt, and dill for three to four weeks to become a pickle. From there, onions and other spices are added to the cucumber/pickles to make relish.

Like the cucumbers, driving under the influence in Louisiana can take you down a path but not one you will relish. Penalties can range from fines, Driver’s license suspension, Ignition Interlock device on your vehicle and jail time. Not to mention the financial and physical and mental burden it puts on family and loved ones.

Don’t get stuck in a pickle. If you have been drinking, please appoint a designated driver or use a taxi / rideshare app. This is not only for your safety but also protects everyone else on the road.
