Being able to get a Monday off from school or work is always great. We can usually thank a holiday for this glorious occasion and add one more day to our weekend for even more relaxation. Holidays give us an extra reason to surround ourselves with family and friends, however, police officers see holidays as a breeding ground for arrests and tickets.
Police officers know people tend to drink and party more on holidays, so they have “No Refusal” initiatives. These initiatives were implemented because police officers expect an influx in drinking and driving during these times. They hope these initiatives will make people think twice about driving while intoxicated, and help catch the offenders that do.
If you are arrested or charged for DWI there are a number of problems you may have to deal with. First, being arrested is unpleasant. Then there are the actual penalties you have to deal with afterwards for being charged with a DWI, such as:
- Revocation of your driver’s license
- Mandatory alcohol education
- Higher insurance premiums
- Confiscation of your car
- Jail time
If you are charged with a DWI you need a lawyer from The Kyle Law Firm with a track record of success. Whether it was a “No Refusal” weekend or not, you deserve to be treated fairly. Police officers are required to follow certain procedures. That means they had to have a good reason to pull you over, and to make you take a breath or field sobriety test. They also have to read you your rights and inform you of the state’s rule regarding sobriety test consent. If these procedures aren’t followed, the lawyers at The Kyle Law Firm will challenge the DWI charges against you.
Contact The Kyle Law Firm so that we can prepare a defense to exonerate the DWI charges against you, or fight for you to receive a fair penalty.
