It is a well-known fact that drunk driving accidents can have a significant impact on the lives of both the victims and those who have been charged with a crime. Injured victims can face long, painful recoveries and families of deceased victims face the painful process of grieving their loss.
An Arizona marshal’s office will strengthen its DUI enforcement efforts this Memorial Day weekend in an attempt to catch intoxicated drivers and possibly prevent injuries or fatalities due to automobile accidents.
DUI is a crime taken very seriously by law enforcement agencies in Arizona and these planned efforts prove that on this Memorial Day weekend, it is best to stay sober behind the wheel and obey all traffic laws.
Facing charges related to drunk driving can be very upsetting for residents across Arizona. Drivers know that we are not supposed to get behind the wheel after drinking, but people can make mistakes. Unfortunately, authorities are very aggressive in their pursuit to arrest people for these mistakes and they implement various initiatives in an attempt to curb the number of alcohol related incidents.
A new study published in the journal Pediatrics has found that fewer children are being killed in drunk driving accidents. A 40 percent decline has been witnessed in the previous decade. The study also suggests that children are more likely to be killed in alcohol-related accidents when they are in the same car with an intoxicated driver, rather than in a car that is struck by a drunk driver.
While many residents of Arizona might believe that celebrities and professional athletes can avoid the consequences of DUI charges due to their status, a former NFL player proved recently that this is not always true. The former quarterback was arrested in December when, according to court records, he was reportedly driving at 81 miles-per-hour on a road with a posted maximum speed of 65 miles-per-hour in Arizona.
