That's why it's crucial to have an experienced lawyer protect your rights in the event of a DUI offense.
Lexington, KY (PRWEB) December 24, 2008
A Lexington, KY attorney says drinking and driving is dangerous at any time of the year -- but especially during the upcoming holiday season.
"A 2007 federal traffic safety study showed the daily death toll from drunk driving crashes rises significantly during the Christmas and New Year's holiday periods," said lawyer Frank Jenkins III, the principal partner in Frank Jenkins Law Office.
Those who drive after drinking at a holiday event could face a long list of criminal penalties if they're stopped by law enforcement officers, Jenkins said.
"An arrest for driving under the influence is a serious, intimidating situation that can tarnish your reputation and hurt your family and your career," said Jenkins. "That's why it's crucial to have an experienced lawyer protect your rights in the event of a DUI offense."
Jenkins has added a new DUI information page to his Web site to assist Kentucky residents who find themselves arrested for impaired driving. Drunk driving information featured on the Frank Jenkins Law Office Web site includes:
- The two ways that motorists can be charged with drunk driving in Kentucky.
- Facts about the right of Kentucky motorists to contact an attorney prior to any breath, blood or urine test.
- The specific penalties for first, second and third-degree DUI offenses.
