Arrested for DUI over Labor Day Weekend?

Labor Day weekend and the rest of the summer season is now behind us. However, if you are among the many drivers throughout Southern California arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs this past weekend, you may be considering your next move.

Just like any other popular American holiday for celebration and drinking (such as Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas), Labor Day weekend correlates with a significant increase in DUI arrests. This is due to the fact that law enforcement increases their efforts in deterring drunk driving by conducting more patrols and establishing more DUI checkpoints than your average weekend.

If you were arrested and charged with a DUI in Ventura County, our qualified DUI lawyer at The Law Offices of Robert F. Sommers could help you get your charges reduced, or your case dismissed entirely. With more than 20 years of experience, our team can investigate your case, gather evidence, and determine if the arresting officer followed proper protocol in order to obtain the most favorable outcome possible.

So, the next time you decide to drink during the holidays, the following are tips to help you, your family, and your friends avoid DUI arrests on those particularly long weekends:

  • Designate a sober driver for the night
  • Contact a taxi or ride-sharing services, such as Uber or Lyft
  • Plan to stay the night, instead of driving home
  • Host the celebration at your place, but prepare ride situations for your guests
