Summertime DUI Charges

Posted by Mark Garka | Aug 09, 2016 | 0 Comments

What comes to mind when you think of summertime? BBQs? Poolside get togethers? Family outings? Sports events? Vacations? Beach days? Concerts? Community festivals? If you're like many Seattle area residents, summertime means most of these things and one common denominator these festivities share is alcohol. It comes as little surprise, then, that summertime also coincides with a spike in DUI arrests all over the country.

This is especially true in greater Seattle. We're fortunate to live in a bustling urban area full of stunning locales and vibrant, exciting cultural events. In summer 2016 alone, the city will be hosting a number of major events sure to attract tens of thousands of attendees.

  • Kenny Chesney concert
  • Seafair Weekend
  • Red White & Brew
