Statistics show that October 2012 was the worst month for alcohol related fatalities. This year, police departments everywhere are cracking down to make this Halloween a safe Halloween for everyone.
If you are charged with a DUI in Chicago you face thousands of dollars in fines, impounding fees, drug and alcohol counseling and legal representation. Then you have the annoyance of having a crime on your record that could affect school scholarships, employment and perhaps be used against you in custody and divorce cases. It is in your best interest to plan ahead a night out to avoid these inconveniences.
Task forces have set up strategic checkpoints throughout major cities. Some cities are even offering programs that will offer a free ride home! Before you go out, be sure to have a designated driver. Or make arrangements with a cab to chauffeur.
Halloween should be fun and safe!
