Camden DUI Lawyer: Avoid a DUI on Memorial Day Weekend
Law Offices of Michele Finizio, released an article discussing “Camden DUI Lawyer: Avoid a DUI Memorial Day Weekend”, if you would like to know more Please continue reading below.
Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season in New Jersey and throughout the rest of the country. Over the last six years, there has been an increase in alcohol-related car accident fatalities and injuries during the holiday weekend, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). The AAA Foundation estimates that 37 million drivers will be hitting the road for the holiday this year, often after celebrating and drinking just hours before. Around 40 percent of those fatally injured over the holiday are because of drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
This year, police and law enforcement will be on force in massive numbers looking for intoxicated drivers throughout Camden County and New Jersey. Last year on Long Island, New York, almost 100 drivers were arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) over the Memorial Day Weekend on the island’s two counties. Even worse, this number does not account for arrests made by local, state or federal officials – only those law enforcement officers employed by the county. Getting pulled over and accused of a DUI in New Jersey is not uncommon during Memorial Day weekend in Camden County.
Having DUI charges on your record can have devastating results and can lead to extreme difficulties in a person’s life. Suspended licenses, points on your license, towing charges, fines and jail time can result from receiving a DUI in New Jersey. The best way to avoid the risk of a DUI this Memorial Day weekend is to:
- Have a designated driver who has consumed no alcohol or drugs drive you to your destination. It is not safe to consume any amount of alcohol and get behind the wheel of a car.
- Avoid driving on road between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. because of the dangers involved in driving during this time and the amount of law enforcement present.
- Wear your seatbelt.
- Do not drive above the speed limit.
- Stay focused on the road and do not give law enforcement a reason to pull your vehicle over.
