Police increase enforcement during St. Patrick's Day

From March 17 to March 20, the Lebanon Police Department in Missouri will be taking part in a national effort to curb drunk driving. The name of the campaign is Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and there will be high profile events in Missouri and other states to highlight the dangers of drunk driving. A statement from the Lebanon Police Department said that there were 163 people killed and 575 seriously injured in drunk driving accidents throughout the state in 2015.

Overall, nearly one-third of fatal car accidents involve one or more drivers who were impaired at the time of the crash. Evidence has shown that running national campaigns such as the one being put on during St. Patrick's Day weekend can reduce drunk driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. During St. Patrick's day in 2015, there were two people killed and seven injured in drunk driving accidents across Missouri.

An individual who has been charged with DWI faces serious consequences if convicted. It may be possible to spend time in jail, pay a fine or lose his or her license either temporarily or permanently. However, an attorney may be able to help craft a defense that could lead to the charge being reduced or dropped altogether.

An attorney may argue that an individual did not have a blood alcohol content higher than the legal limit, or that a reading above the limit was flawed. It may also be possible to argue that an individual had a medical condition that mimics the signs of impairment such as slurring words or being unable to stand.
