A Doubled DUI Arrest Rate In Washington State Shows Prevalence Of Problem

So far this year, a municipality in Washington state, Bellingham, has doubled
its DUI arrest rate. There has been an average of one DUI arrest 
per day up 'til now in 2019. Of course, the question to ask is, why? The 
reason is startling. The Bellingham police believe that operating under 
the influence is one of the biggest threats to public safety, and so 
they put a $20,000 grant into more resources to combat DUI. The results 
are staggering.

It is clear that people believe they can get away with DUI, which is 
actually a very serious crime and which the public seems to think can be 
brushed of as a no-no with a wrist slap. Make no mistake, never operate 
a car, or any vehicle, even a bike, if you are intoxicated by any 
substance. The police are devoting more and more resources to clean up 
this social problem, and, eventually, if you continue to drink and 
drive, you will be caught. If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, 
Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and 
have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for 
aggressive and experienced legal defense.
