Washington State Patrol Steps Up On Super Bowl Sunday

Posted by Aaron J. Wolff | Feb 06, 2013 | 0 Comments

If you were driving after the Super Bowl, you may have noticed an increased presence by the Washington State Patrol.

This was no coincidence as state troopers were out in full force cracking down on drunk drivers following the big game, reports Q13 Fox News.

Similar to other heavy drinking days like New Year's Eve and St. Patrick's Day, the Washington State Patrol set out dozens of extra units to look out for drunk drivers. Some signs troopers looked for include erratic driving, driving without lights, speeding, and even driving well below the speed limit.

If you were busted for a DUI after the big game, you should be aware that you face very serious penalties. Even a first-time DUI arrest can result in jail time and a monetary fine. In addition, if you wish to continue driving, you will have to install an ignition interlock device which could cost you several more thousand dollars.

That's why it is very important to contact an experienced DUI  attorney if you face criminal DUI charges. A lawyer can help explain the charges you face, the DUI process, and possible ways you can avoid or lessen potential penalties.

Nothing goes better on a Sunday afternoon then watching the game, drinking beer, and eating pizza. This is especially true on Super Bowl Sunday. But while it is not a crime to have a good time, it is a crime to drink and drive. Contact the attorneys at Wolff Criminal Defense to talk about your defense.
