1,300 DUI Arrests in 19 Days

Posted by Steve Karimi | Sep 09, 2013 | 0 Comments

An article in the local paper reports that more than 1,300 people across the state of Colorado were arrested for DUI during a 19 day period from August 16th to September 3rd. Every year local law enforcement participates in a Labor Day crack down where up to 100 police agencies across the state take extreme measures to find and arrest drivers who are impaired. Over 1,300 drivers seems like a staggering number and considering that there were nine people killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes during this period some may question the overall effectiveness of these measures. If you have been arrested for DUI in Washington State, call a Seattle DUI defense attorney right now for assistance. 

When police officers look to crack down on DUI drivers, they set up random sobriety checkpoint and s place officers along popular intersections at late night and early morning hours. The purpose is to catch as many drivers who have been drinking as possible.  The majority of alcohol related deaths occur from drivers with a BAC of over .15 percent. The legal BAC limit is .08 percent and many drivers who are arrested have a BAC that is closer to this number. If you have been arrested for DUI in Washington, call a Seattle DUI attorney right away. When police make crack downs such as this, they can become overzealous and eager to make DUI arrests. This leads to mistakes and misjudgments on the officers' part. While it is unfortunate to be needlessly arrested for DUI, the good news is, when mistakes are made, an experienced Seattle DUI attorney can help you fight the charges.
