DUI on Thanksgiving: Defend Your Rights

When people think of the day with the most drunk driving accidents, holidays are usually the first things that come to mind. Out of these, the most commonly thought of holiday includes New Years Eve. This, however, is not actually the truth. In fact, the holiday with notoriously the most DUI accidents is Thanksgiving. This is mostly associated with the fact that people often travel to spend the holiday with their family – and during this time, wine and other alcoholic beverages are typically part of the meal.

This, however, leads to law enforcement officers being on high alert. DUI sobriety checkpoints will most likely be established and roving officers will be looking for the tell-tale signs of inebriated drivers behind the wheel. This, while with public safety in mind, can go in the wrong direction and can leave the innocent suffering from criminal charges that they do not deserve.

What if you were just tired? The symptoms of fatigue can often mirror drunkenness and while this is not the safest method of transportation, yawning behind the wheel is not a criminal offense. Unfortunately, the symptoms could be mistaken. A field sobriety test could be skewed from nerves, a breathalyzer could malfunction. There are unfortunately many factors that can lead to a wrongful arrest.

It is important to remember though that just because you have been criminally charged with a DUI does not mean that you will be convicted. By working with Thomas and Paulk, you will be able to take the necessary steps towards challenging the DUI evidence and building the strongest case possible. We encourage you to contact our firm as soon as possible. With the holidays right around the corner, law enforcement will be on high alert, don't let yourself get caught off guard.
