During any holiday season, the number of drunk driving arrests spikes dramatically. Why? Two reasons: police enforcement of drunk driving goes up significantly during busy holiday seasons, and people tend to drink more during holiday parties, celebrations, outings etc. This combination leads to more stops, arrests, convictions, and people needing an expert drunk driving and driver’s license attorney.
People suffering the humiliation, anger and stress of a drunk driving arrest during the holidays often ask the following questions:
- “Will I go back to jail for this?”
- “How much am I looking at for fines?”
- “Will my license be suspended?”
- “Who will find out about this?”
In Ann Arbor, generally speaking, clients might expect to pay over one thousand dollars in base court fines/costs if convicted of a drunk driving offense. They might expect to lose their privileges to drive for a short period of time. And, they might expect to face jail time for subsequent offenses, or in the event of the slightest violation of bond or probationary conditions. These consequences are real, and they can be severe. Having a specialized, aggressive and experienced drunk driving attorney in Ann Arbor can often help avoid or severely lessen these consequences.
