DUI: Police enforce safety campaigns over the holiday

Summer is a time of cookouts, vacations and fun in the sun. For many Illinois citizens, the Fourth of July holiday is the highlight of the summer season. Independence Day is often celebrated with food, fireworks and adult beverages. Unfortunately, the Fourth of July holiday is also one of the most dangerous times of the year, as many people get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Police across the state typically make more DUI arrests during holidays as they ramp up patrols.

Illinois is a great state in which to live and work. Because of this, populations are on the rise across the state. However, this influx of people means that roadways will become even more crowded and dangerous, and motor vehicle accidents will rise as a result. Traffic accidents happen for a number of reasons, but regardless of the reason, accidents are always stressful. This stress can be greatly exacerbated when an accident ends in a DUI charge.

A DUI charge can turn a holiday into a tragedy

During holidays, police in Illinois say that there are more arrests made for driving under the influence of alcohol than at other times of the year. In Illinois and across the country, police forces commonly ramp up patrols during holidays, in an effort to reduce accidents and keep the roadways safe. Holidays are a time of celebration for many, and it is important to remember to celebrate responsibly. Getting a DUI charge is definitely something that can turn a celebration into a tragedy.

Drivers can receive a DUI charge without consuming alcohol

Driving under the influence is a very serious charge that can mean jail time and significant fines. Additionally, a DUI charge can ruin reputations and stay on person's record, hampering any attempts at future employment. However, many Illinois residents are unaware that a DUI charge is possible if a driver is operating a motor vehicle with drugs in his or her system. Driving under the influence of drugs is just as dangerous as drunk driving. Using drugs before driving, prescription or recreational, can land a person behind bars.

Driving while under the influence of certain medications can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol, and it can also result in heavy fines and jail sentences.
