As you can see from your neighbors hanging their Christmas lights, the holidays are upon us once again
The holiday season brings with it shopping, eating, family, friends and of course drinking and being merry.
While the drinking and being merry part is perfectly fine, getting behind the wheel afterward is definitely a problem. Arizona is one of the toughest states on driving under the influence. This is demonstrated time and time again through the severe consequences pursued by prosecutors and given out by the courts. We also see how seriously local jurisdictions take DUIs each holiday season through their well-publicized DUI task forces. Each year local police, politicians and community leaders come together and announce the start of increased DUI enforcement.
Police officers will be on high alert for any sign of driving under the influence
Even small traffic infractions such as rolling through a stop sign, not using a blinker, or driving slightly too fast or too slow can tip them off and result in you being stopped. Once pulled over, officers are highly trained and use savvy techniques to determine whether or not you are impaired. It’s much easier to be arrested for a DUI than you might think. Don’t take any chances: get a designated driver to drive you home from your holiday parties.
