DUI charges during Labor Day weekend

People face DUI charges at all times of year, but some occasions are especially likely to result in these allegations, such as holidays. With Labor Day weekend coming up, it is important to be aware of this matter and stay off of the road if you have had too much to drink. However, many people will likely find themselves pulled over and accused of this offense during the holiday weekend and in the event that DUI charges arise, it is essential for those who are facing charges to have a clear idea of their options.

Holidays can be especially difficult when it comes to drunk driving for a variety of reasons. For starters, many people have a few drinks at a family party or a celebration with their friends. These drinks may seem harmless, but when they put a driver’s blood alcohol content level over the legal limit they can be extremely problematic.

Sometimes, people accidentally get behind the wheel while they are drunk after attending a celebration. For example, this may occur when someone has a mixed drink at a party, and they are not aware of how much alcohol was put into the cocktail. For example, someone may mix an excessive amount of strong liquor with juice, and someone may not realize that even having one small drink will leave them over the legal limit.

If you are facing charges related to driving under the influence, it is important to know what your rights are. Our DUI page covers some other legal matters concerning these charges.
