THANKSGIVING WEEK IS HERE!
Along with all of the turkey, stuffing, cranberries, friends and family, Thanksgiving week brings a lot of alcohol.
Wine, beer and various spirits will be consumed this week, with the highest amounts of drinking coming on Thursday -- but also a high level of drinking comes on Wednesday and Friday, when people are out meeting friends and family.
DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
Law enforcement will be out in full force this weekend. Police will be looking for all of the telltale signs of drinking and driving, ranging from swerving, driving without headlights and even watching for people to come stumbling out of bars.
This year, because of recent changes in Ohio's DUI/OVI laws, the penalties for drinking and driving have gotten harsher. Penalties now include longer driver's license suspensions; mandatory jail time and/or treatment; requirements for interlock and/or orange license plates; and fines. Additionally, many courts have increased court costs, making DUIs/OVIs more expensive than ever.
If you have an issue this week, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 330-653-8511.
