At any time of the year, there are drivers who are pulled over due to a law enforcement official’s belief that they are driving under the influence of alcohol. However, there are some instances when these charges are especially prevalent, such as holidays. With Labor Day around the corner, it is important to be aware of checkpoints and increased attention toward drunk drivers and ensure that you do not get behind the wheel if you are drunk. Unfortunately, many people will find themselves facing these charges, sometimes they may even be innocent. If you are charged with DUI during Labor Day, handling the charges correctly is essential.
Our law office knows how tough drunk driving charges can be, particularly for people who are enjoying a holiday. Moreover, many different factors can increase the chances of a one-off mistake such as drunk driving during the holiday. For example, people may not drink very often but they may choose to have a couple of drinks at a party, not realizing that they are intoxicated and above the legal limit. With mixed drinks and distractions such as visiting with friends and relatives one has not seen in years, this can be an especially difficult time with respect to accidentally driving drunk.
During Labor Day weekend and every other time of the year, the way in which drunk driving charges are handled could have a significant impact on a person’s future. Our DUI page covers more related to being charged with driving while under the influence.
