St. Patrick’s Day, like all holidays in the Mid-South and across the country, provides a day to celebrate and take a quick break from our hectic schedules. To enjoy any holiday safely, we need to use common sense and take precautions to ensure everyone does so safely.
Coming Across DUI Checkpoints
Unfortunately, impaired drivers on the road spikes dramatically on St. Patrick’s Day, like other holidays throughout the year. Rest assured, police units across the Mid-South will heighten their efforts to keep the roads safe. If the past is any indication, one way to ensure safety is to set up DUI checkpoints.
In the past few years, Tennessee law enforcement officials have set up “no refusal” blood-draw DUI checkpoints. As reported on Police State USA in 2016, these random DUI checkpoints lead to a drastic increase in arrests, especially during holidays.
If these checkpoints are instituted this coming St. Patrick’s Day, as we anticipate, drivers suspected to be impaired will be subject to mandatory field sobriety tests and a mandatory blood draw if the officer deems necessary. DUI Block posts a comprehensive list of anticipated DUI roadblocks for many counties in the Tennessee.
Obviously, the best course of action is to never drink and drive. As we have previously written, a DUI conviction has long-term effects on your personal, professional and financial well-being. If you are facing a DUI charge, we advise that you contact an experienced lawyer who routinely handles these types of charges. The attorneys at The Chiozza Law Firm - Your901Law - will handle your case in a confidential manner while protecting your rights every step of the way, doing so for a reasonable fee and payment arrangements.
