Another DUI enforcement weekend is here

It was recently reported that Massachusetts police, particularly in Worcestor County, will be out in force looking for drunk or otherwise impaired drivers. This DUI enforcement campaign is to run from Friday, April 6 through Saturday, April 7. Those arrested during this time frame could be looking at some serious consequences if they are ultimately convicted.

The superintendent for the Massachusetts State Police failed to give many details on this campaign. It was just stated that it will occur on a public street, and the hours of operation will vary. Law enforcement officers will work diligently to minimize any inconvenience this sobriety checkpoint will have on motorists.

Why is the state doing this? Impaired driving is a real concern here. The reason for this campaign, and others like it, is to bring the issue to light, educate the public and remove impaired drivers from the roads before they harm themselves or others.

A DUI charge is not something to take lightly, as it will not be treated that way in court. The consequences that accompany a conviction on such a charge can include jail time, fines and loss of driving privileges -- it all depends on one's criminal history and prior DUI offenses on record. Facing a DUI charge can be a bit frightening, but it does not mean that a conviction is a sure thing. With the assistance of legal counsel, Massachusetts residents who are accused of driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol can do everything possible to defend themselves and fight for the best possible outcome.
