Drunk driving charges and Halloween

People are charged with DUI throughout the year, but some occasions, such as holidays, often see an increase in the number of drivers who are pulled over for operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. There are multiple reasons why Halloween can give rise to an increase in drunk drivers, such as costume parties that bring many people to bars and celebrations with friends and family members. Moreover, law enforcement officials may be especially vigilant when it comes to drunk driving. If you are charged with drunk driving on Halloween, or at any other time, it is crucial to know what is at stake and go over your options immediately.

Many people celebrate Halloween with a few drinks, which can result in failing a breathalyzer test. Some people may even forget that they consumed alcohol or fail to realize that they drank enough to put them over the legal limit (which can be particularly tough with mixed drinks, for example). People may be offered alcohol at a friend’s house while they are trick-or-treating with their kids, or they may drink during a party that is being hosted by a restaurant or bar. Either way, these charges are not to be taken lightly.

Drunk driving charges can do far more than ruin someone’s Halloween. They can result in the loss of driving privileges, time behind bars and a shattered reputation in the community. As a result, those facing DUI charges should be fully aware of their legal options and the smartest approach to their situation.
