The Labor Day holiday weekend is right around the corner. If you are planning on going to cookouts or other festivities, you should make your plans for getting home safely if you are going to consume alcohol. This could help you avoid having to face a drunk driving charge.
Most people know that police officers are going to be on the lookout for drunk drivers during these long weekends. This means that you shouldn't get behind the wheel if you are drinking. Instead, use a designated driver or another option like a ride-sharing program to get home so that you aren't risking a criminal charge.
Of course, you can't always predict that you are going to end up somewhere with alcohol. If you do have a few drinks, try to drive home and end up facing criminal charges, you should be ready to offer a defense against these charges.
We understand that you might not understand what your options are. Drunk driving cases are mystifying to some people who haven't ever been in the criminal justice system before. We can help you learn about what you need to do and what options you have for your defense.
In a recent blog post, we discussed some of the penalties of drunk driving charges in Colorado. Take the time to understand these and then use your knowledge to motivate you to take an active role in your defense planning. We are here to help you at every step of the process, but we need to get things started as soon as possible.
