April is finally here, which mean that spring is in the air. This also means that the warm weather will herald in revelry and overzealous drinking.
April is also one of the biggest months for college spring breaks. Lots of college kids will be heading off for spring break with sunny destinations in mind. While we wish this wasn’t the case, college spring breaks are also synonymous with substance abuse, whether that be smoking marijuana or drinking too much.
With all of the college kids heading to popular spring break destinations, extra traffic on the road poses a lot of dangers. Last year around this time, there was a huge spike in traffic related accidents and deaths. So, while it’s important for you to enjoy yourself on your time off, it’s also important to stay safe.
Today, we’re going to discuss some of the most common ways that college kids get arrested during spring break, and how you can know the laws and protect yourself.
During spring break, Arizonian college students head out of town to a variety of tourist destinations, like San Diego, New Orleans, Denver, and Miami. Some college students like to stay in-state and other students in neighboring states might make their way to Lake Havasu City in Arizona, which has been a popular vacation spot since the 90s. With the influx and outflow of traffic, Arizonian police are going to be on the prowl this month to enforce laws with road tripping spring breakers, looking for common misdemeanors amongst this age group.
Even if you’re not a college student, you should beware that April is another crackdown month for DUIs. Whether you’re visiting Arizona from out-of-state or a domestic resident, the Weingart Firm can help protect against driving while intoxicated charges.
