Wisconsin DUI Enforcement Patrols will be in full effect on New Year’s Eve.  All across the state, special WI DUI Task Forces are gearing up for extra patrol shifts to crack down on drunk drivers over the holiday.  Holidays in WI mean cocktailing with friends and family.  New Year’s Eve usually means there are many gatherings, whether at a home or a local hotspot.  It is a celebration of the good and bad of the past year, and hope for future years to come.  That hope can be crushed if arrested for drunk driving in Wisconsin. Do not start the year off wrong with a Wisconsin DUI Charge.

Holiday Crackdown on Drunk Driving in Wisconsin

Getting pulled over by a WI police officer can be a downer for a night, but being charged with a WI DUI can be a total buzz kill. With so many gatherings and parties to attend, it can be over-whelming for a person to attend every party; however, it is in a person’s best interest to stay in one place when drinking.  There are many safe alternatives for transportation, such as a designated sober driver, party buses, or public transportation.

Intoxicated Driving in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin DUI Task Force does not patrol to pull everyone over, rather they look for signs a person is driving while under the influence of an intoxicant.  These signs include driving slower than the speed limit, swerving erratically, not having headlights on, or slow reactions, etc.  Once pulled over, police officers look for signs of impairment including red, glossy eyes, odor of intoxicants, and slurred speech.
