PennDOT will be participating in the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign to help avoid drunk drivers on the road this July 4th Holiday.
From now until July 7, PA police will be conducting statewide checkpoints as well as roving patrols to target drunk drivers.
July 4 is known for being a holiday with a wide number of DUI arrests.
Drug recognition experts, also known as DRE’s, will be present at DUI checkpoints to help police determine if a driver is under the influence of a controlled substance other than alcohol. Drug Recognition Experts are officers trained to determine the signs of one being under the influence of drugs.
If you do get arrested for a DUI over the July 4th holiday, be sure to contact a DUI lawyer right away. Even if you feel you have no chance of getting your charges dropped, you still should exercise your right to get an attorney to look over your case and help you prepare for court.
