Oswalt Law Group Discusses DUI and Summer Driving Issues

Summer Presents Challenges and Difficulties for Drivers; The Arizona Criminal Defense Firm of Oswalt Law Group in Phoenix Discusses the Realities of Driving Over the Summer and Steps Drivers Can Take to Reduce Their Risks

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2015) - Summer presents special challenges for drivers. There are more cars on the road as families use the opportunity of the school break to travel and warm weather encourages trips to local attractions. More drivers are pulled over during these months, on average, and more drivers are arrested for violations of traffic law, including DUI. The attorneys at the Oswalt Law Group in Phoenix commented in a recent interview on legal issues that drivers may face.

"Drivers on the road during the summer months face a stronger police presence, in general, than during other times of the year," says Oswalt Law Group. "Simple traffic offenses such as speeding may be more likely to be treated harshly by officers than at other times of the year. Additionally, with the sheer number of miles many people travel during this time of year, there are more opportunities for mishaps such as collisions than at other times. Thousands of people will receive misdemeanor citations for running stop signs, parking violations or even minor 'fender-bender' accidents."

However, the attorneys at Oswalt Law Group note that speeding or running a stop sign has very minor consequences compared to the most common serious traffic offense: driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, commonly known as DUI. "A DUI charge, even a first offense, can result in very serious consequences upon conviction, including jail time, fines and probation as well as the necessity of installing an ignition interlock device or IID. Arizona has some of the nation's toughest DUI laws, so it is very important to avoid a DUI charge. If you are charged, it is critical to hire an attorney to represent your interests."
