The pandemic has changed the way we celebrate holidays, but hasn’t changed the laws and the public’s responsibility to drive sober.
Spectrum News spoke to attorney Peter Pullano, who says he expects more people will get charged with DWI this new year because fewer drivers will be on the road in relation to police officers.
“You’re not going to get any sympathy from a police officer because of COVID if you’re drunk driving tonight or any night,” said Pullano, managing partner at Tully Rinckey PLLC. “It’s still going to be what the officers are looking for. It’s still a very important safety issue, and it’s important for drivers to comply and make sure they’re safe and everyone else on the road is safe.”
