Halloween Patrols to Target Drunk Drivers

Halloween has become more than trick-or-treating child’s play. It now generates some of the largest numbers of adult parties of any event of the year. And like St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve, alcohol plays a role, making it statistically one of the largest holidays involving impaired or drunk driving accidents.

In response, law enforcement will be conducting special patrols and sobriety checkpoints in search of those driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It should be noted that any impairment, whether from alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription medicine or any combination, can lead to an arrest for DUI or DWI.

An arrest for drunk driving or impaired driving can result in loss of driver’s license, courts fees, fines, jail, community service, supervised probation, required enrollment in a substance abuse program, loss of auto insurance, and, in many states, the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device.

Those planning to drink alcohol during a Halloween party should plan ahead for safety. Use of a designated driver, safe ride home, taxi or public transportation is encouraged.
