Don't risk charges for drunk driving during the holidays

During the holiday season, police here in Amherst and elsewhere are often out in force looking for impaired motorists. They watch for people who may have had one too many drinks at a holiday party or family get-together. While there is nothing wrong with enjoying some holiday cheer, it would be wise to take the steps necessary to avoid charges for drunk driving.

Driver could face more than just DWI charges in fatal crash

As is the case anywhere else, Amherst police often begin their investigations into motor vehicle accidents by questioning whether a driver involved was impaired at the time. If there is enough evidence to make police believe their suspicions are substantiated, then a driver could end up under arrest and facing DWI charges. Thereafter, police will conduct the remainder of their investigation into the crash, which could mean more charges for the alleged impaired driver.

Holiday parties may have adult beverages. Drink responsibly.

It is the time of year when many New York residents have busy holiday schedules. While your work schedule may seem a bit more hectic as you try to reach end-of-year deadlines, you may also have a full social calendar. Work-related functions, get-togethers with friends, and family gatherings may all be on your list of events.

What does it mean to face charges of disorderly conduct?

It is football season, and many people in New York take the sport seriously. They attend tailgating parties and games regularly, and sometimes, they get a bit out of control. When that happens, they could end up facing charges for disorderly conduct.

Whether your arrest was minor or life-changing, never forget that you have
options. Your rights are important. Take advantage of your rights now.
