Holiday DUIs

Law enforcement in Pierce County has increased DUI patrols throughout this holiday season, according to The News Tribune. Extra officers will be patrolling the roads until January 1, 2014, as part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

An average of 49 people were killed in traffic accidents statewide from 2008 to 2012, according to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission.

Whether you are attending a holiday party at a friend’s house or hosting your work Christmas party, be safe when it comes to drinking and getting behind the wheel by avoiding it altogether.

Be aware of increased efforts in the area and make smart decisions. If you or someone you know has been stopped, questioned, or arrested for driving under the influence, the first call you should make is to a qualified DUI defense attorney. We are available 24/7 on our on-call attorney line at (253) 217-4849.

Happy Holidays and be safe!
