Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
Douglas A. Schwab is the principal at The Law Office of Douglas A. Schwab, Phoenix DUI attorneys, and he has spent several years defending clients who have faced prosecution after being arrested on suspicion of DUI and other drunk driving-related criminal charges in Arizona. The Arizona law enforcement community recently announced that it will be intensifying its efforts to locate and to arrest people who are driving after consuming alcohol. Mr. Schwab warns the public to avoid drinking and driving during the holiday season much as anyone should during any other time of year.
Specifically, Mr. Schwab is warning people that since the announcement of this stepped-up DUI enforcement was made in November by the Southern Arizona DUI Task Force, hundreds of people have already been investigated for possible DUI in Arizona. This statistic is based on a report that was released by KVOA in Tucson on November 24, 2012.
In addition, the Southern Arizona DUI Task Force announced on November 27 that its holiday enforcement of DUI laws in 2011 led to approximately 4,000 arrests on suspicion of DUI. This report appeared on the KTAR Web site. According to the state government, more than 30,000 people are arrested on suspicion of DUI or DUI-related offenses throughout the state every year.
Mr. Schwab hereby asks anyone who will be driving during the holiday season to avoid consuming alcohol. He further advises people who do plan to consume alcohol away from home to designate a sober driver to handle the driving duties for that evening. Finally, if anyone who does consume alcohol without a designated driver present should make use of taxi cabs or public transportation as opposed to driving after consuming alcohol.
