Additional DUI patrols expected during Halloween

The Party City commercials should let you know what time of year it is. In just a couple weeks, Halloween will be here. While there is a particular emphasis on preparing kids for a memorable night of Trick-or-Treating with great costumes, it is no secret that young adults see Halloween as another opportunity to party.  And with these parties, alcohol is a constant presence.  

When Halloween comes, drivers should know that that additional patrols will be out in force to catch drunk drivers to take them off the road. It is not uncommon for Halloween parties to bring out the best (in costumes) and the worst in judgment. Also, with many more pedestrians on the street (many of them children) police are likely on high alert so that no driver who has had “a little too much” to drink causes an accident that can lead to tragic injuries. 

Indeed, we are not lost on the fact that not everyone suspected of DUI (or even DWI) is actually guilty of a crime. There are a number of ways to challenge a drunk driving charge, including challenging the initial stop, any deficiencies within the field sobriety tests applied, as well as the calibration of the breathalyzer that was used to measure your blood.

Given the potential for fines and criminal sanctions, it is important to have an experienced attorney at your side. Many people have never had to deal with the police, much less the criminal justice system. Because of this, it is better to have an experienced criminal defense attorney who can explain your rights and options.
