Fireworks, barbecues, swimming in the pool or the lake, and generally enjoying the company of family and friends: this is how millions of Americans celebrate Independence Day. The 4th of July is an excellent time to celebrate all of the things that we hold dear, and consider important, as Americans. For many adults, that celebration will include a beer, or a glass of wine, or some other alcoholic beverage. Hopefully, everyone will remember to ensure that they have a safe ride home at the end of the day’s festivities. Unfortunately, the Colorado Department of Transportation reports that in 2011, more people were killed in drunk-driving accidents in July than in any other month. We do need to remember, as we celebrate our freedom, that we also have a duty to behave responsibly, and not to do anything that will endanger the lives of others.
Are you facing DUI charges? Then you need the dedicated assistance of an aggressive Colorado Springs DUI defense attorney immediately.
As usual, the Colorado State Patrol, in cooperation with more than 80 other law enforcement agencies across the state, is running it’s annual DUI enforcement campaign: “The Heat is On.” The goal of eliminating drunk driving, and the unnecessary pain and suffering that is involved in fatal drunk-driving accidents is certainly a good one. However, the methods that police often use to work toward that goal can violate the rights of Coloradans. One of the things that we celebrate on the 4th of July is the fact that we as Americans have certain rights, even when accused of crimes said Greeley DUI attorney Thomas Grant.
