16 Sep Eggnog season sees a “spike” in DUI charges

The holiday season is upon us, bringing with it wintry weather and a flurry of festive celebrations. As family and friends come together, most will gather to eat, be merry, and of course, drink. In addition to gifts and goodwill, The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s see some of the highest rates of DUI charges and alcohol-related accidents all year.

Virginia’s interstates and highways will be flooded with motorists this month as some travel to spend time with family and others rush to wrap up their holiday shopping. The potential for accidents is dangerously high, and state and local police will be out in full force. Virginia law outlines severe consequences for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
