Maximum DUI enforcement is in effect during the Holiday Season. This means much greater law enforcement presence on the highways which results in increased stops and DUI arrests. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years holidays are the “Black” Fridays of DUI arrests. Certainly during the 3 or 4 days over those holidays, there are more officers on the road for traffic enforcement, especially DUIs, than at any other time except maybe Super Bowl, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
If you are planning to party or end up drinking away from home, have a designated driver, stay the night at a friends or hotel, call a cab or Uber. It is much cheaper and safer for everyone if you act responsibly. A single lapse of judgment or a delayed reflex as the resulkt of alcohol or drugs could result in not only a misdemeanor DUI but a felony DUI if someone is injured or even a murder charge if someone is killed in an accident caused while under the influence. That not only ruins your night but can ruin your life and the lives of others. DUI arrests come from the greater number of check points and traffic stops during this time. However, there are also arrests made for DUIs when there are domestic violence reports, bar fights, and civilian 911 calls concerning a person involved “driving under the infl;uence” and leaving the bar, home or observed by other drivers seeing erratic driving on the road.
Have a Happy Holiday Season but a smart one, take care of yourself and your friends and others by not letting them drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They will thank you later.
