Nine DUI Arrests in Three Days
Arlington Heights (August 15, 2019) – From July 13 to 15, Arlington Heights police officers charged nine people with driving under the influence (DUI). Each of the nine charges were from separate incidents. This was an unusually high number of DUI arrests for a relatively small Chicago suburb. The state reported 330 deaths in alcohol-related crashes in 2017, which was approximately 30 percent of the total traffic fatalities that year.
The lawyers at Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys encourage you to avoid driving under the influence at all costs. Driving while intoxicated puts you, your passengers, and other drivers in potentially grave peril. Additionally, being charged with a DUI may have a serious impact on your everyday lifestyle, should your license be suspended. Please use taxis, rideshare services, designated drivers, or public transportation if there’s even the slightest chance that you’ll be too inebriated to drive. Source: Chicago Tribune
