This weekend, we celebrate our nation’s independence. The 4th of July is a great summer-time holiday that many people look forward to because there are so many parties and events to attend. However, we would like to remind people that while you should have fun and partake in festivities, it is important that you do not drink and drive.
In the state of North Carolina, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. During holiday weekends, law enforcement increases patrol units to crack down on drunk drivers and also drunk driving accidents, which can lead to serious injuries and even fatalities.
Instead of driving after having a few drinks, call a cab or appoint a designated driver. This will ensure that you do not get into any legal trouble or cause a devastating DUI accident.
If you have been involved in an accident with a drunk driver in Raleigh and you suffered injuries, you should take the time to become aware of your rights and legal options.
