DWI lawyers can help you navigate a DWI charge. They are available year-round. However, some times of the year, DWI lawyers are busier than others. Here are the three busiest times of year for DWI lawyers.
1. The Fourth of July
The Fourth of July is a great time to celebrate. Unfortunately, sometimes the celebrations are tainted by a DWI charge. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Fourth of July is one of the worst days to be on the road. About 40% of fatal auto accidents from 2007 to 2011 were related to drunk driving.
The police presence is also very high during the Fourth of July holiday for this reason. If you know you’ll be drinking on the Fourth, be sure to plan ahead. Don’t get behind the wheel if you’re intoxicated. It’s important to keep yourself and others safe on the road.
2. The Winter Holidays
From the Thanksgiving holiday through New Year’s Eve, there is an uptick in DWI charges. Sometimes the holly jolly season results in a DWI charge. The uptick in DWI cases during the winter holiday season keeps DWI lawyers busy.
It’s crucial to stay safe on the road during the holidays
3. Spring Break
Spring break is another hectic time of year for DWI lawyers. During spring break, there is an uptick in young adults seeking legal advice from a DWI lawyer. Spring break from college allows students to decompress before their finals. Sometimes the decompression goes overboard and results in a DWI.
Other times of the year worthy of an honorable mention for raising demand for DWI legal support include Superbowl Sunday, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, and all of the summer months. Any time there is a holiday, the number of DWI cases increases, resulting in a higher demand for legal services.
If you have been charged with a DWI, hiring a lawyer that can help you navigate the case should be a priority. No matter what time of year, you can find a DWI lawyer to help you with the case. Call us today to learn more.
