The holidays and DUI charges

Drunk driving charges can bring holiday celebrations to an abrupt end. Whether someone drives home after opening presents with loved ones or ringing in the new year, DUI charges can be devastating for someone accused of this offense and those they love. During the holidays, there is an increase in the number of people accused of DUI. Not only do more people tend to drive while intoxicated, but certain areas have additional law enforcement officials on the lookout for drunk drivers. We are all too familiar with the hardships that entire families often go through when DUI charges upset their holiday celebrations.

Sometimes, people might even forget that they have alcohol in their system. For example, someone might enjoy a mixed drink at a family party, not knowing how much alcohol was in the drink. Later on, they could be above the legal limit even though they do not feel intoxicated. Moreover, a lot of people have been charged with DUI after driving home from a bar or firework display on New Year's Eve. It is important to be mindful of the potential consequences that come with DUI charges regardless of the time of year. For example, the revocation of a driver's license, steep fines, and even time in prison can all make life tough.

With DUI cases, various aspects of the incident may need to be examined since they could impact the outcome. Our DUI section covers other matters related to allegations of driving while under the influence of alcohol.
