More and more DUI arrests?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 02, 2011 | 0 Comments

If you drive around Sandy Springs or  Dunwoody at night or on the weekends, you will likely see some bright blue lights and someone taking field sobriety tests.  It seems there  has been a prominent increase in DUI law enforcement, DUI task force officers, and DUI sobriety checkpoints.  DUI enforcement gets a lot of federal dollars and counties and cities are hungry for those dollars. 

DUI convictions are very costly to the individual, but very attractive to the municipality.  Fines for a first DUI can be as much as $1,000 plus hundreds of dollars in court costs, a supervision probation fee payable every month for 12 months that costs over $40 per month, DUI school fees (about $300), license reinstatement fees, and assessment and counseling fees.  Not to mention the possibilities of increased insurance costs and the costs of the underlying traffic offense tickets plus probation. 

If you are faced with an unfair DUI charge, call Sandy Springs DUI lawyer Richard Lawson for a free consultation of your unique case.  With the high costs associated with pleading guilty to a DUI, not to mention the probation, community service requirements, and possible jail time, you owe it to yourself to discuss your case with an experienced DUI lawyer.
