Labor Day weekend and the rest of the summer season is now behind us. However,
if you are among the many drivers throughout Southern California arrested
for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs this past weekend,
you may be considering your next move.
Just like any other popular American holiday for celebration and drinking
(such as Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas), Labor Day weekend correlates
with a significant increase in
DUI arrests. This is due to the fact that law enforcement increases their
efforts in deterring drunk driving by conducting more patrols and establishing
more DUI checkpoints than your average weekend.
If you were arrested and charged with a DUI in Ventura County, our qualified
DUI lawyer at
The Law Offices of Robert F. Sommers could help you get your charges reduced, or your case dismissed entirely. With
more than 20 years of experience, our team can investigate your case, gather evidence, and determine if
the arresting officer followed proper protocol in order to obtain the
most favorable outcome possible.
So, the next time you decide to drink during the holidays, the following
are tips to help you, your family, and your friends avoid DUI arrests
on those particularly long weekends:
- Designate a sober driver for the night
- Contact a taxi or ride-sharing services, such as Uber or Lyft
- Plan to stay the night, instead of driving home
- Host the celebration at your place, but prepare ride situations for your guests
