Fourth of July weekend means increases in drunk driving

On Behalf of | Jun 28, 2017 | DUI |


With the celebration of the Fourth of July holiday, most Americans think of barbeques, picnics, fireworks and parades. The last thing on anyone’s mind is the potential of a drunk driving arrest after a day or night of celebrating the birth of our nation.


It is not uncommon, however, for Americans to celebrate the holidays with a couple drinks. Add to it the warm weather and it is no wonder that there is an increase of driving under the influence during the holidays.

Local and state authorities are well aware of the increase of drunk drivers on the roads during these times. While strict driving under the influence laws and penalties are in place to dissuade people from getting on the roads after a few drinks, it still happens quite often. Law enforcement officials will be on the roads looking for suspected drunk drivers, and may even set up checkpoints and stops to find those driving under the influence.

If you are facing DUI charges in Pennsylvania and suspect you might be able to find a reason to fight the charges, you may want to get more information about the details of your case to see if there is a viable defense option. A strong criminal defense strategy may be include analyzing all of the evidence in your case in an attempt to find errors or mistakes made by authorities during the time of your sobriety test or subsequent arrest that could possibly lead to the case being dismissed.
