Indiana travelers at risk for drunk driving accidents

The holiday season is a busy time of year. In addition to an increase in the amount of shoppers, Indiana roadways often become jammed with traffic from holiday travelers on their way to various social occasions and events. Anyone traveling by motor vehicle remains at risk for an accident. Some will also find themselves in need of legal help if they happen to be arrested on drunk driving charges.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently reported an overall decline in drunk driving accidents in the United States. However, the number of fatalities caused by such incidents remains an issue, with more than 700 alcohol-related accident deaths in 2014. Being accused of driving drunk is a serious matter and can result in severe penalties for those convicted in court.

For this reason, it is typically advisable to seek legal counsel if one has been arrested for intoxicated driving in Indiana. Depending upon the circumstances of an individual situation, the options available to aid in a defense against such charges may vary. An experienced criminal lawyer would be able to evaluate a particular situation and provide sound legal counsel as to how best to proceed.

Those in Indiana who plan on imbibing are advised to follow the law and act with caution when getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. Being charged with drunk driving can have immediate and long-lasting negative effects on a person's private and professional reputation. Nevertheless, seeking legal representation in the matter may help one obtain a positive outcome in court.
