Memorial Day DUIs On The Decline

According to the California Highway Patrol, CHP officers arrested 187 people for DUI in L.A. County during the period between 6:00pm on Friday and 11:59pm on Monday. This number was down from 230 in 2011.

There are likely a number of factors that contributed to the decline, some of which include aggressive anti drinking and driving ad campaigns by law enforcement agencies, greater number of law enforcement officials patrolling the roads and highways and even the price of gasoline, which likely kept a significant number of people off the roads this past holiday weekend.

A DUI can be a scary experience and something that you should not have to go through alone. If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI and has court at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, the Metropolitan Courthouse or the Airport Courthouse, contact Attorney Ross Erlich as soon as possible to prevent an automatic suspension of your license and to ensure that an aggressive defense is provided to you.
