Summer Triggers Increase in DUI

Posted on in DUI

The warm, carefree days of summer also see some of the highest numbers of DUI arrests. Make no mistake-your chances of being arrested for DUI increase dramatically during the months of June, July and August.

Every year, roughly 200,000 Californians are arrested for DUI. Many of those arrests take place during the months of summer. California has stringent laws against DUI, and your chances of being arrested and possibly even convicted are fairly high during summer, when there is zero tolerance for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Here are a few very simple tips to avoid driving and getting arrested for DUI this summer. Simply avoid driving after having had a few drinks. It's not possible for you to tell exactly how legally intoxicated you are after having had a couple of beverages, and it is very common for Los Angeles DUI defense lawyers to come across clients who underestimated their capacity and tolerance for alcohol. These people had acouple of alcoholic beverages, and didn't realize that it was not safe for them to drive.

If you are drinking, and expect to be driving later, eat plenty of food with your drinks to reduce intoxication. Space out your drinks, and avoid binging. At a summer party, it's easy to overdo the alcohol, and not even realize it.

If you are pulled over by police officers, do not resist, and do not get hostile. Do not admit to driving after having had just a couple of alcoholic beverages before driving, and if possible, do not refuse achemical alcohol test. This could actually make your situation even worse, because there are separate penalties that apply to alcohol test refusal.

Speed to a Los Angeles DUI defense attorney as soon as you are arrested for guidance.
