Keeping the roads safe is a priority for many police officers. As this long holiday weekend begins, police officers will be taking more of an interest in watching for signs of drunk driving. What does this mean for you? It means that you need to stay away from the driver's seat if you have any alcohol to drink.
It is completely understandable why many adults turn to alcohol during these festive events. What isn't acceptable is when people know that they are going to drink and don't make plans to get home safely.
We understand that things happen sometimes. We are here to help you learn about your options for a defense when you slip up and find yourself facing drunk driving charges.
You should make sure that you are thinking carefully about how you handle your defense. A drunk driving conviction comes with several penalties that can make life difficult for you.
First, you might find that you can't run errands. Even trying to get groceries might be a challenge. Why? Because your driver's license might be suspended.
Second, you might lose your job. Why? Because of that suspension. This is often the case if you need to drive as part of your job duties. It can also be the case if you are unable to be reliable because you have court dates and other obligations due to the conviction.
We know that this is scary. We are here to help guide you through the process and explain your options. Once you know them, you can decide how you will handle your case.
