If you are operating a motor vehicle in the Phoenix area during the holiday period up to and including New Year’s Eve, be aware that the Phoenix Police Department is participating in the East Valley DUI Task Force throughout the month of December. This means that the police are stepping up their traffic stops in an attempt to nab drivers who might have been drinking and driving. The program centers on the times between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Any perceived traffic infraction will result in a stop, and DUI suspects will be investigated and may be arrested.
Your first step, if arrested for an alleged DUI, is to contact a Phoenix DUI Attorney who has the experience to provide you with the best defense to a drunk driving charge. At the Law Office of David A. Black, we specialize in defending DUI cases. We will investigate the charge against you, from the legality of the stop, to the accuracy of any tests performed by the police to prove you were intoxicated, and we will take every step to insure that your rights are protected.
Remember that DUI charges carry serious penalties, including possible jail time. In addition, the loss of your driver’s license will have serious impacts on your job, your family and your entire way of life. Finally, there are substantial fines and increased insurance premiums in the event of a conviction. Don’t become a victim of a holiday DUI charge.
