Increased traffic on Houston's roads means an increase in police presence and DWI patrols over the Fourth of July weekend.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 04, 2016
The Houston DWI lawyers at Corso Law Group expect DWI patrols and alcohol-related arrests over the Fourth of July weekend this year.
Fourth of July weekend is considered one of the deadliest weekends of the year. In 2014, approximately 164 people were killed in drunk-driving accidents during the holiday weekend, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
That same year, Harris County targeted drunk drivers with increased police presence during its DWI crackdown. Officers made 192 DWI arrests, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
“Increased traffic on the roads means an increase in police presence and DWI patrols over the holiday weekend,” said Christopher Corso, founder of Corso Law Group. “Drivers need to understand their rights at all times.”
A Texas DWI can result in harsh consequences, including expensive fines, jail time, license suspension and irreversible effects on one’s career and educational opportunities.
With a zero tolerance policy, it’s crucial for drivers this holiday weekend to understand the dangers of driving and driving as well as their rights if they’re stopped at a DWI checkpoint in Houston.
“Your rights matter,” Corso said. “No one should be drinking and driving on Texas roads but if you’re pulled over or stopped at a Houston DWI checkpoint, knowing your rights is imperative.”
