Pulled Over for a Washington County DUI
Living in Washington County Wisconsin has the perk of small-town privacy, but lacks modes of public transportation. Many people drive to hang out at a bar with friends, meet up for a pool or dart league, or just have a drink for happy hour with some co-workers.
Avoiding a Washington County DUI Arrest
In Washington County, a person’s safest mode of transportation after having a few drinks is a sober driver. Although, many people do not realize their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is over the legal limit when they get behind the wheel of their vehicle. These people choose to get behind the wheel and drive home. A driver may think that home is not that far or taking “back roads” is safer. A Washington County police officer will pull over any vehicle showing signs of an intoxicated driver.
Officer Observations of A Potential Washington County DUI
