Drunk Driving on New Year’s Eve/Day

Drunk Driving on New Year’s Eve/Day

Police departments all over the country are constantly cracking down on drunk driving, but perhaps at no time more aggressively than during the holiday season, and over New Year’s Eve/Day in particular.

Tonight, as our Palm Beach and Broward County DUI defense lawyers know, police — undercover, in cruisers and at checkpoints — will be on the lookout for vehicles showing the signs of a potentially drunk driver.

Our skilled lawyers know that being arrested for DUI can have a devastating effect on your reputation and your relationships; make sure that tonight, you have fun but travel as safely as possible.

Drunk driving is incredibly dangerous. In 2012, for example, nearly 30% of all traffic deaths involved a driver with a BAC of .08% or higher.

Our DUI defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert consistently represent individuals who have been arrested for or charged with a DUI offense. From our experience, we know that DUI arrests tend to spike around the holidays — whether it’s Independence Day, Memorial Day, Christmas or New Year’s, we know that the holidays bring about far more drunk driving accidents than do regular days throughout the year. That’s why it’s so important to drive safely, particularly around this time of the year.

So, what are the signs of drunk driving that police officers look for when they’re out on patrol? From experience, and as research has shown, police officers, among other things, look for signs such as swerving vehicles, excessively fast driving, very slow driving, a lack of headlights at night, etc.

Getting arrested for DUI can mean losing your license, losing access to your car, etc. Getting charged with DUI can mean having to disclose such information on job applications, school applications, etc. Finally, getting convicted of DUI can mean losing your ability to drive for an extended period of time, paying excessive fines and court fees, and having the cloud of a DUI conviction following you around for the rest of your life.
