Every year during the annual trick-or-treat merriment that surrounds Halloween, some people miss out on the party.
And here is why: the flashing red lights that suddenly appear behind their vehicle while they are out motoring in traffic.
For many of those unfortunate individuals, the holiday spirit rapidly fades. It is replaced instead by police orders to perform sobriety tests, submit to blood-alcohol testing and subsequently endure the long and painful experience marked by a drunk driving arrest and conviction.
Tennessee law enforcers do not apologize for that. In fact, they aggressively engage in pre-Halloween hype that underscores their resolve to identify and arrest alleged DUI offenders in high numbers during the abbreviated party period.
"We will be conducting increased patrols and using enforcement techniques to look for aggressive or impaired drivers," recently noted Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott.
Halloween and other holidays/national parties are obviously spotlighted by police agencies that notably ratchet up apprehend-and-convict efforts in drunk driving cases. Obviously, though, enforcers are out on streets and roadways every day of the year looking to make arrests.
And when they do, the consequences can be severe, indeed. We prominently note that on our blog at the proven DUI-defense law firm of Hindman & Lanzon in Knoxville.
