For those of you who are planning on going wine tasting this weekend, be on the lookout for the police.
Napa has announced that it will increase its DUI enforcement this Friday night from around 9pm until 2am. You should expect to see roving patrols and maybe even a checkpoint in high-traffic areas and areas known for DUI accidents and arrests.
If you do get pulled over, remember you don’t have to answer any questions other than stating your name and showing the officer your paperwork. Don’t answer if you’ve been drinking or where you were coming from. Exercise your right to remain silent. By remaining silent, you will see great benefit if you do wind up getting arrested and need to appear in court.
If you end up getting arrested for a DUI, always be sure to head to court represented. You should never just accept your charges or fight your DUI on your own. The court process is way more complex than you think, especially for DUI cases. Find a lawyer today.
