Providence Police to Crack Down on Drunk Driving

Posted by Matthew Marin | Apr 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

A recent article in the Providence Journal discussed the Providence Police Departments renewed efforts to curb drunk driving.  The article, Drive drunk at your peril: Providence intensifies crackdown on DUI violators, discusses several major changes that the Providence Police will be implementing to combat drunk driving in Providence.  The most impressive change involves the rollout of the BATmobile which is a $375,000 mobile breath testing operations center.  The goal of the BATmobile is to allow Providence Police to make DUI arrests and return back to the streets to continue enforcement.  In addition, 60 new recruits will be put onto the street shortly as patrol officers with the training and direction to seek and arrest drunk drivers.

As a Rhode Island DUI Defense Attorney, I have handled a significant number of Providence DUI cases.  The level of expertise displayed by arresting officers can vary greatly, which can often times create significant DUI defenses.  If you have been arrested on aProvidence DUI charge, you should be aware that the prosecution ofProvidence DUI cases, including first offense DUI Charges in Providence, can be extremely severe including probation, heavy fines, extended loss of driving privileges, and (depending on the Judge) possible incarceration (even for a first offense).  You absolutely need the assistance of a skilled and experienced Providence DUI Lawyer to put you in the best position possible to minimize the negative impacts that a Providence DUI arrest may have on your life.  At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esquire, Inc., we are available 24/7 to take your call and have flexible hours to schedule a no fee, confidential consultation to discuss your case at our downtown Providence Office.  We are also available by email at[email protected] or you can fill out the contact form on our website HERE.
