Boise Criminal Lawyers, DUI Attorneys, Divorce Attorney, Family Law Lawyer, Probate call (208) 472-2383

As the 4th of July weekend 2011 comes to a close we read in today's paper about the numerous DUI arrests made over the weekend.  This year in Boise there were 17 DUI arrests.  Boise Criminal Lawyers are very busy this time of year.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the 4th of July weekend is one of the deadliest times of year as far as traffic fatalities.  There are many factors which play into this statistic.  Firstly, it's summer and people are our enjoying the warmth and sunshine.  More people on the road means more accidents.  Of course, the most obvious reason for the high rate of accidents is alcohol.  It is a holiday, people are drinking and they are driving under the influence.  The NHTSA reports that over the past 25 years half of the fatal crashes on Independence Day have involved alcohol.

While this startling statistic gives Boise Criminal Lawyers and DUI Attorneys plenty to do, it can ruin someone's life.  If you are charged with a DUI it can impact your entire way of life.  No only do you have to deal with the consequences of the DUI arrests which have a huge personal impact, but if you have harmed someone in an accident caused by driving under the influence you may be responsible for a personal injury action against you or worse, you may be responsible for the death of another person.

What can you do to prevent the consequences of a DUI?  The first answer is obvious - don't drink and drive.  However, if you have found yourself in that situation (which we know from the recent news coverage of Senator McGee - it can happen to anyone, even those you would least expect), it is very important to follow all the recommendations of the court and the advice of your criminal lawyer.  Your attitude in presentencing requirements and in a DUI sentencing can make a huge difference for you and your family.
