People are taken into custody for driving drunk throughout the year. However, there are some days when the likelihood of DUI arrests is especially high, such as Halloween and other major holidays. Halloween can be a particularly concerning holiday when it comes to DUI charges for a multitude of reasons, and if you plan to celebrate the holiday this year be careful to avoid getting behind the wheel with alcohol in your system. Unfortunately, there are various reasons why some drivers will be pulled over for operating their vehicle while above the legal limit.
For starters, many Halloween celebrations involve mixed drinks. Even kid-friendly parties can feature drinks for parents, and sometimes hosts have a heavy pour. This turns one cocktail into the alcohol equivalent of two or even three. Hard liquor can be concerning in this regard, and some people may not be aware that they are unable to drive after a drink or two.
Other people may be pulled over for DUI after celebrating with their friends or spending some time at a bar. Costume parties and many other activities are a lot of fun on Halloween, and many people enjoy these activities with a couple of drinks. However, those who are pulled over for DUI should carefully take a look at the way in which their case is approached since their entire future could be adversely impacted by an unfortunate incident that occurred on one night.
