Providence - Experienced Rhode Island DUI Attorney Matthew Marin warns that Rhode Island residents will be under extra scrutiny during Rhode Island's DUI crackdown this New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
The Rhode Island State Police, in cooperation with local police departments, will have additional patrols targeting speeding, aggressive driving, seat belt and child restraint violations, texting violations and especially impaired drivers, according to a press release issued by the RI State Police.
The program is focused on drunk and impaired driving enforcement and continues to be a vital mission of the Rhode Island State Police. They once again want to remind Rhode Islander's to "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."
Attorney Marin would like to forewarn Rhode Island residents to expect extra drunk driving enforcement patrols and arrests during the New Year's Eve holiday weekend. Historically, the roadways are particularly dangerous after midnight and during the early hours of New Year's Day, the day of the year with the highest percent of alcohol-related deaths.
To avoid legal problems and to make the Rhode Island roadways safer, Attorney Marin always recommends that individuals plan ahead for their New Years festivities. Planning ahead can save your life, or save the lives of others on the roadway. Other simple solutions can help you avoid costly legal problems; designate a driver or use a ride-sharing application. Both #Uber_RI and #Lyft will be out in full force and available after mid-night for those in need.
“If New Year's Eve festivities lead to legal problems, those facing criminal charges can count on the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq., Inc. to provide the experienced legal representation they need,” Marin said.
