CHP beefs up Super Bowl California DUI enforcement

California DUI defense lawyers report the California Highway Patrol will have more officers patrolling across the state on Super Bowl Sunday in an attempt to lower alcohol-related deaths and injuries.

On Super Bowl Sunday 2008, 12 people were killed and 167 injured in alcohol-related crashes in California.

"We're not discouraging the celebration," CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said in a news release. "We're asking fans to make the right call, so they won't find themselves benched in a jail cell."

A total of 403 people were arrested for driving under the influence on Super Bowl Sunday of last year.

"A DUI is no 5-yard penalty," Commissioner Farrow warned. "It's something that will follow you around for years to come."

The CHP encourages people to use a designated drive on game day.


Searching for a qualified California DUI Lawyer ?

Various types of lawyers handle San Diego drunk driving cases, including public defenders, general practitioners, criminal defense lawyers, and DUI Specialist attorneys.



A San Diego County public defender is a California attorney provided at little or no cost to provide defense services to people who financially are unable to hire a private San Diego lawyer. Most San Diego County Districts generally do not offer public defenders services unless you are unemployed, significantly under-employed and/or have no assets.



Some excellent questions to begin asking when searching for a California DUI lawyer are:



What are his or her California DUI attorney's qualifications?



Is he or she a Specialist member of the California DUI Lawyers Association?



Is he or she a member of the National College for DUI Defense?



Whether or not you ultimately end up hiring a California DUI Specialist attorney, it is a smart idea to speak to a California DUI Specialist lawyer in this highly complex field.
