Beware drunk driving dangers when you trick or treat

Many Florida adults enjoy celebrating various community festivities during the Halloween season. From costume parties to adult version trick-or-treat events, hundreds of people join friends and family to show off their creative costume ideas and have fun. This year, police officers throughout the state say they are going to be on the streets as well, not to trick or treat, but to keep their eyes peeled for possible drunk driving situations.

The endeavor is known as a DUI Wolfpack Operation. At approximately 9p.m. Saturday, until Sunday near dawn, police officers will patrol the streets looking for drivers who appear to be impaired. In this state, anyone behind the wheel of a car with a blood alcohol content level of .08 or higher is considered legally intoxicated and may, therefore, be subject to criminal charges.

Police have set up a special call number so those traveling can call in to report any motorist who appears to be drunk at the wheel. The number also allows roadside assistance to be accessed quickly when needed. A DUI Wolfpack Operation cannot remove a person's constitutional rights.

There is strict protocol governing the words and actions of police as they conduct investigations for possible drunk driving or any other alleged crime. If, at any time, a police officer violates a person's rights, the person may request a case dismissal if charges are filed at some point. Challenging a case in a Florida court is definitely no small matter and is typically best undertaken alongside highly experienced and aggressive legal representation.
