Orange County is not the only place in Southern California that experienced an increase in DUI arrests over the Thanksgiving weekend. According to the California Highway Patrol, the number of DUI arrests during the Thanksgiving weekend in San Diego County is up as well.
Over the past weekend, 36 motorists were arrested on suspicion of DUI between 6 p.m. on Wednesday and 6 a.m. of Friday. This number is being compared to last year's 32 DUI arrests. Although this is small increase, it is an increase nonetheless, and is a sign that people are continuing to drink drive despite stepped up law enforcement efforts.
San Diego has a zero-tolerance DUI enforcement policy, which means if you are caught drinking and driving you can expect to be arrested, taken into police custody, and booked on DUI charges.
If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI in San Diego, it is important to find an experienced San Diego DUI lawyer you can trust to protect your rights and put up an aggressive fight against your charges.
