Florida Ready to Come down Hard on Labor Day DUIs

The campaign is already underway, as increased patrols are on the lookout for anyone who is driving under the influence. While officers are always on the alert for intoxicated drivers, holiday weekends are notorious for the increased risk of drunk driving accidents. That is why the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign is in full effect until Labor Day weekend is over. About 10,000 law enforcement agencies will promote this campaign.

This action is understandable, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released statistics stating that about 10,839 people lost their lives in 2009 in a car or motorcycle crash involving a driver who was impaired by drugs or alcohol. It was also discovered that the age group with the most alcohol-related accidents were adults aged 21 to 24 years old.

Now, you have every right to enjoy yourself this Labor Day weekend, and it is only natural that this celebration should include refreshing drinks with friends. Just remember to not get behind the wheel, even an hour after a couple of drinks. Designated drivers are always a good idea, and then there is always the option to call a cab.

Even if you do legally head out on the road after a drink, you could still face an unwarranted DUI charge. An overzealous police officer may have stopped you without cause. There may not have even been probable cause to administer sobriety tests. Breathalyzers have been known to give out faulty readings before. Perhaps your blood test is riddled with errors. Whatever the reason, you cannot afford to live with the consequences of an undeserved DUI, which can lead to jail time, hefty fines, a suspended driver's license, job loss, and more. If you have been charged with a DUI, contact a Tampa DUI lawyer immediately! Get the rigorous DUI defense you deserve with Thomas & Paulk.
