This Chicago DUI attorney wants to remind you that the holiday weekend has begun. There’s great summer weather perfect for enjoying boating, picnics, and The Taste (Hello Robert Plant). One more thing, the police will be out in full force, whether it is a roadblock or not, this holiday weekend looking for any and everyone who may have enjoyed a beer or a cocktail.
DUI STRIKE FORCE PATROL IN THE AUSTIN (015TH) DISTRICT
The Chicago Police Department will conduct a DUI Strike Force Patrol in the Austin (015th) District beginning at 7:00 p.m., Friday, July 2, 2010 and ending at 3:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 3, 2010.
The purpose of this program is to saturate a pre-designated area with roving police officers that continually monitor vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving. Patrols also place emphasis on speed, alcohol-related and safety belt violations. Police vehicles equipped for speed detection are deployed to apprehend speeding violators.
FYI: Impaired Driving is just fancy law enforcement speak for a DUI charge.
Free Legal Advice: If you are the Designated Driver, you must not consume any drugs, alcohol, or medicines. If you think you’ve had too much to drink to safely drive home, do not attempt to catch 40 winks.
