Happy Safe Fourth of July

By admin

Total DUI just wants to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July!

I hope that the weekend weather forecast is shaping up for everyone, and you are all excited about spending a long (for some) weekend away from the office.

The Fourth is about celebrating with family, friends, food, fireworks and maybe a little alcohol – which also means swarms of police. All over the country, newspapers and online dailys are talking about a DUI crackdown this weekend.

In states where DUI checkpoints are legal, police will likely have them set up starting tonight until Monday.  Any DUI suspects stopped at these checkpoints will be arrested for drinking and driving.

Many states are planning to have the DUI patrol out in full force. Depending on state DUI laws, if you are arrested and convicted of DUI, you may have fines, jail time, probation or alcohol counseling courses.

Driving under the influence is a serious criminal offense so be careful this weekend. Happy 4th of July!
