DWI and the Holiday Season

During December and January there are many holiday parties and gatherings that are intended to bring people together and celebrate the important times of year. Often, people return home to relatives and take the opportunity to catch up with old friends and family as well. Despite the enjoyment of these events, they can also lead to DWI arrests and other drunk driving dangers. Law enforcement officials are particularly zealous about looking for intoxicated drivers during the holiday season, and it is unfortunately easy for someone to be wrongly charged with DWI.

If you or someone you love is facing DWI charges or has questions regarding the DWI process, consulting with an experienced attorney may be helpful. Contact the Raleigh DWI defense lawyers at the Law Office of Jim Black at 919-600-4609 to discuss your rights with a member of our qualified legal team today.

Information on Holiday Drinking

The holiday season is a reason for many people to celebrate. A large number of people have days off from work and time to spend with friends and family. Although drinking socially during the holiday season seems normal, it is important to understand the potential dangers associated with drinking and driving.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted a study that investigated times of the year when alcohol crimes were most common. The last two weeks of December were shown to contain nearly 40% of all alcohol related collisions that led to fatalities, and in order to try and prevent these accidents, law enforcement officers increase their patrol. There are many DWI arrests made during this time of year, and without strong legal representation, accused individuals may face serious consequences.
