Fourth of July DUI

Throughout the United States the Fourth of July weekend is notoriously the busiest time of the year for DUI arrests.  Throughout Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, the law enforcement is out in record numbers to assure the safest holiday travel.  The other reason is it is generally an easy time to make many arrests.  If you are traveling through, a DUI can be especially daunting in dealing with courts, travel, cost and defending the action from afar. There are a number of factors that contribute to the high rate of arrests and stops during this week.  First, July is typically a hot month in which people consumer cold beverages.  Many adults partake in beer or other alcoholic beverages as their cold beverage of choice.  Second, there are many parties, festivals, picnics, and community activities both on July 4th as well as the weekend either before, during or after the actual July 4 date.  In 2012, Independence day happens to fall on a Wednesday, making both the weekend prior and the weekend after prime for parties, festivals, boating, picnics and fireworks.  Contributing to the high rate of convictions, is the fact that may people simply plead guilty and others have too much difficulty defending the case from out of town. This particular time of year is also very big for the boating community.  Police and water safety officers come from Newport, Cincinnati, Covington as well as Kenton, Hamilton, Campbell and Boone Counties.  Each year the number of boating DUIs increases as patrol has also increased.  Boating DUI or OVI can have significant impact on not only your boating license, but also a driver's license, insurance and penalties associated therewith. If you have been arrested or charged with DUI in Kentucky or OVI in Cincinnati, contact an experienced DUI attorney at your earliest convenience.  If you have questions or wish to schedule a consultation, contact Michael W. Bouldin at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453. I have experience in dealing with out of town clients who wish to defend their case and uphold their rights.  I can also aid clients from other states in dealing with licensing issues as well as rescheduling and minimizing court appearances.
