Holiday weekends are often filled with a lot of fun, but could also be filled with problems if there's too much alcohol involved. A large number of people are arrested each year for DUI over long holiday weekends, partially due to parties going on and partially due to additional law enforcement on the roads. Those between the ages of 18 and 34 are most commonly arrested when it comes to driving under the influence, but no one who drinks and gets behind the wheel is immune.
Have you been here before? You had one drink, or maybe a few. Some time has gone by and perhaps you had something to eat, so you feel okay to drive. Suddenly lights are flashing behind you and now you're not okay. How did you get here? Maybe you rolled through a stop sign or ended up at one of Chicago's DUI checkpoints. Whatever caused the officer to pull you over, he tells you to blow into a Breathalyzer and the next thing you know, you're accused of driving drunk.
