Fourth of July is nearly here; be mindful of drunk driving

It seems like just yesterday that we were shoveling out from snow and welcoming in the spring season. Now we have the birthday of our country, the Fourth of July, next week. While the holiday means different things to different people, most Americans know how to celebrate in style. Throughout the country, Americans will be attending parades, watching fireworks and hosting barbeques among family and friends to celebrate the holiday.

But with the holiday comes an inevitable increase in drunk driving arrests and accidents. While most Americans are mindful of what they drink and avoid going out on the roads after too many adult beverages, there will be thousands who get behind the wheel and take to the streets while still under the influence.

State and local authorities are aware of the increases of drunk driving on the roads during the holiday, and often increase patrols to dissuade people from getting behind the wheel. They also try to catch those in the act by setting up checkpoints and road blocks to try to catch drunk drivers.

As we have stressed before, being convicted of drunk driving can lead to serious consequences. Not only will you lose your license, you may also spend time in prison and face additional penalties. If you are facing such a charge, it would be in your best interest to speak with a lawyer familiar with drunk driving to see what can be done. They may be able to get the charges reduced, or even look at perhaps having evidence dismissed, depending on the circumstances of your case.
